A New Dawn...A New Beginning...

Sunrise on a new beginning
 Ecclesiastes 11:7 "Truly the light is sweet, and it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun..."

This morning I beheld the sun rise on the ocean...one of my most favorite things to do...Not only for its beauty and magnificence...which is beyond description...but for its promise...

"Promise of what?" you may ask.  Promise of re-creation...a new day...a new beginning...a fresh start...
   Promise of redemption...of hope...of forgiveness...of renewal...of salvation...
       Promise of a future...fulfillment... life everlasting...joy...peace... love...eternity

"All of this you see in the sunrise?"   Yes, all of this...and much much more.  Every day the sun rises on this earth...every day we have a new opportunity to live, to laugh, to love...to give life, to give laughter, to give love...to offer hope, forgiveness and salvation...every day that we have life...we have all this and more.

Today I beheld the sun rise on my life...and I felt the SON rise in my heart.  For it is the SON Who rises within my soul Who gives this hope, forgiveness, love, peace, joy, fulfillment, a future, redemption and salvation...it is the SON Who enables me to laugh, to receive and offer hope, to dream and see dreams come true, to forgive and be forgiven...without the SON in my life I would be hopeless, loveless, joyless...and lost.

Yes, today I beheld both the SUN rise and the SON rise on the dawning of a new day...and I have hope.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge.  There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.  Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.  In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices like a strong man to run its race.  Its rising is from one end of heaven, and its circuit to the other end; And there is nothing hidden from its heat."  Psalm 19:1-6
"O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!"  Psalm 8:1 
"This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24 Amen.


  1. Lucky you!! I,too, love to watch the sunrise at the beach---I just don't get to do it very often! I'm glad you had such a beautiful day, all because of the SON!!

  2. We were given a free gift of one night at our cousin Jane's condo...a great opportunity to clear the air and heart after a week of stormy seas. Thank you, Lord!
