"I am the Lord, and there is NO OTHER;
There is NO GOD besides ME.
I will gird you, though you have not known Me,
That they may know from the
RISING OF THE SUN
TO ITS SETTING
That there is NONE besides Me.
I AM the Lord, and there is NO OTHER;
I form the LIGHT
AND CREATE DARKNESS
I make peace and create calamity;
I, the Lord, do all these things.
Rain down, you heavens, from above,
and let the skies pour down
Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation,
and let righteousness spring up together.
I, the Lord, have created it."
What is so amazing about these verses is that this was the scripture passage pre-selected for our morning devotions today, which we did not read until after my hubby and I came home from a spontaneous trip to our nearby lake/public boat ramp to watch the sunrise. These sunrise pictures were taken on two separate mornings this weekend, hopefully the first of many with my sweet husband of 45+ years. I cannot begin to express to you first of all, the joy of viewing God's glorious splendor so early in the morning with my hubby...but also the fact that we did it not once, but twice in the same weekend!
If you find your relationship with your spouse is lacking
spontaneity, or you are finding it difficult to make time to communicate with one another,
why not make an effort to wake up a little earlier next weekend (or weekday if you don't have to go to work), grab your travel mugs of coffee or tea, a camera, and a sweatshirt
and take a ride or walk to wherever you can best view
the sunrise together
and just enjoy!
Take a moment to recognize the
majesty and splendor of God's handiwork...
worship and praise Him together...
and then spend a little extra time
sharing the spontaneous joy of the moment with your mate.
This is the best date we've had in a LONG time.
I highly recommend it.
