86,400 Seconds

As I slipped my mug under the coffee maker's spout, the clouds caught my eye. The sun had not yet risen above the horizon. But the tops of the clouds were already catching the promise of the sun.
Sunrise, November 20, 2013
Isn't it ironic that a sky filled with clouds makes for the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets?
You'd think that the clouds would mar the scene. Instead, they are like diamonds, catching the varied facets of light from the different angles.
When life doesn't go as you'd hoped, it can be hard to see the light through the clouds.
But, a morning like this reminds me to keep looking for the wonder, even in disappointment.
 
The geese's call punctuates the cold air and they make commas in the sky near the barn's cupola. Another day has begun ... another day to look for Light despite the clouds.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song. Psalm 95:2

We will spend Thanksgiving in Kentucky with Brent. More on our trip when we get back to the County Line.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
