There's something about a Sunday morning sunrise that is special to me. Oh, I know the sun comes up every day rain or shine, whether we see it or not and it certainly has the same characteristics on Sunday as other days. But maybe it's because when I go out to the barn I am listening to beautiful Christian music with choirs that blend their voices so well and singing songs with such meaning. Or maybe it's quieter and more open to reverence than other days since there is less hustle and bustle early in the day.
Whatever the reason, my senses are keener and I pay more attention to the glory of nature on Sunday morning as I complete my chores before readying for church. And I like to take this time to look at the glass as being full instead of empty, because despite all else that is going on in this often troubled world I am truly blessed to have the love of my Savior in my heart and soul. And I think each of us needs to be sure and take time today to thank the One who made us for all that we have since we are far more fortunate than most. And I also think that we must especially be thankful that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to earth to live amongst us in human form, ultimately dying in a most horrific fashion in order to give us the opportunity to live forever with Him in God's Kingdom. All we have to do is accept Him and believe in Him through faith.
If you can, go to church today and worship Him in the community of believers. If you can't, take time out to read from the Good Book and also pray to Him for guidance in your life. And also remember to forgive those who have caused you trouble and pain for He expects us to forgive others for their sins. After all, each of us is also a sinner.
God bless you all, have a wonderful day on the Lord's Day and live your life in a way that will make Him proud. And if you are as fortunate as I am this day to have beautiful weather, take time to enjoy the beauty and nature of our temporary earthly home. It was made for us to appreciate and care for. Let's do so while we are here.
