Sunday's Sunrise

There are many perks to early mornings.
Living in town, we don't get to see the full sunrise.  
Our view is blocked by houses and trees.  
Sometimes I see the glow of it through our living room window and run out to get a very limited view down the street that runs in front of our home.
But driving out to our country church, my pastor-husband sees a much fuller horizon;
and this was it this Sunday morning.
Whether to spend time in his office for weekeday responsibilities 
or to prepare for Sunday services,
his early morning commute is frequently greeted by a scene like this!
Often my SPIRITUAL view is obstructed by circumstances.  Obstacles beyond my control.
Sometimes I don't have time for more than a limited time in the Word or prayer.
I catch sight of a beauty and perspective that make me long for a broader,
more complete view of God's heart and purposes; His majesty and beauty.
How thankful I am for "church" - a place and people gathered to celebrate
God's heart and purposes; His majesty and beauty.
It is big part of my present spiritual "horizon" until that day when
my sight will be unobstructd and complete... 

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. 
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as  have been fully known.
(I Corinthians 13:12)


  1. Indeed, our circumstances can obstruct our spiritual view! Wise words, Rebecca.

  2. I am thankful for the glimpses we see now, but am looking forward to when we will be with God forever and ever. It will be awesome.

  3. HI Rebecca,
    What a beautiful Sunrise............I love sunrises and sunsets..........they are just glorious reminders of
    Him and the fact, he painted that for us.........and they are constantly in the flux of change, just like
    us, as he paints us to look like Him. Yes, it will be awesome when we get to see Him face to face,
    in all of His glory..............
    Hope you are doing well hon.

    Blessings, Nellie
