When I read Frank’s photo challenge Tuesday I just laughed. It was a dark and stormy morning with more rain than sunshine. Wednesday rolled in with dense fog. A sunrise on Thursday didn’t look promising – more dark clouds and plenty of wind – but I looked out after breakfast and decided to walk down the street in search of the sun.
After weeks and weeks of snow and cold, it felt good to be walking outside! It was still chilly but the sidewalks were mostly clear. I imagine the bike path (on the other side of the pond) still has a few icy sections. Between melting snow and heavy rain Fourmile Creek is FULL and flooding low-lying areas.
While I didn’t get a spectacular sunrise picture, just being outside was good for my spirit. Being outside near sunrise reminded me of this Bible verse:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, [God’s] mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22-23 NRSV
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. – Psalm 90:14 NRSV
May you know steadfast love and mercy every morning – whatever the weather!
