Sunrise Stands For The Triumph Of Light Over Darkness

December 13th, 2010 by Avital


My Impression. My Sunrise

There must be but a couple things more beautiful than a sunrise, but I haven’t seen them yet.
The anticipation in the pre-morning frost is immense.
The teeth are shaking and the entire body shivers with both cold and excitement.
All of a sudden rays of strong red light come out of the thick clouds,
Making them visible in the dark cold black sky.
Already the ridge lights up welcoming the rising sun.
A few more moments elapses and the red rays are accompanied by an orange mist of color.
Almost obscure at first but soon the orange dominates the brave, pioneering red lights.
Then the sky change color to a magnificent cobalt blue.
After some more chilling moments tick past, the vibrant yellow rays are emerging,
followed by a fabulous ball of pure shining gold.
The sun is coming up and sky once again change color to a perfect azure hue.
And without further ado,
let there be light!

What an inspiration are those young first rays of sun that singlehandedly take over darkness.
It only takes one ray to light up half a globe.

    I’m indulging in spending the day in my new robe and reading my favorite blogs… I love a sunrise. Unfortunately, my view is greatly inhibited by lots of trees in front of my house… they are downhill a bit, so I probably only need my husband to take out 10 or so in a certain direction and I could see the sunrise before 8 o’clock (summer time)… I’m thinking my chances aren’t super fantastic, but maybe a couple could go for a small peak, and next Christmas’ firewood. (that’s my selling point)

    I could use some advice and inspiration for a new journal I received for Christmas. (it’s referenced in my last blog post, if you have time to stop by.)

      Thanks so much for sharing. I guess it’s nice that you don’t need to wake up so early to watch the sunrise 🙂 I bet the view outside your house, as you described it with all the trees around, is marvelous in and by itself.

    Well, maybe more sunsets than sunrises — but the sight is something else. Our favorite is watching a sunset over the ocean and if up early enough a sunrise of course.

    Either way, we are enjoy the beauty of the “event” and for us the reminder of God’s power, creativity and presence in our lives.

    Thanks for the prompt and thoughts.

    All the best to you and those you love,
