Sunrise in June

There is nothing like the beauty of a sunrise
Nothing like the singing of the birds
Nothing like the golden rays
Bringing forth a brand new day
I can hardly out it into words

I was walking my dog yesterday morning and just knew something glorious was about to happen. I had been out earlier on my own walk, listening to the wonderful worship music of Michael W Smith, when I noticed the crescent moon peeking through the clouds every so often. It was then that I actually started to set out my timing to take the dog. We have a walking trail in town that was laid where an old rail line had been deserted. The trail slices through town from north to south about a half mile from my house. When I walk down the street and turn left to go north on the trail, there is a bench about ¼ mile up that faces east. There is a gap in the bushes and trees to the east of that bench which gives a perfect view of a summer sunrise. I was thrilled when I realized that this day I had timed my walk perfectly to catch one of the more glorious sunrises we have had in a while. I snapped a dozen or so pictures with my phone, and one of them is before your eyes right now.

Are you as amazed as I am at what God can paint in the sky? Changing every second, the beauty He adorns His clouds with is breathless at times. Man can paint a picture of it, but that rarely gives the account of the slow motion changing of the colors. Every minutes the picture changes, giving us an awesome view. Each, day and every day a new painting emerges. Each night the sunset does the same. Creativity abounds in the mind of our God. This creativity also shows itself in the way he answers our prayers. We may not always get the exact answer we want. But He will creatively fill our needs every single time. He does this by utilizing our faith, giving us the power to call into existence those things that are not. He is an awesome God!

Ephesians 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Praise and Worship

I Sing My Love to Thee

Wonderful Creator
Mighty God is He
He put the stars all up in place
Displays His majesty

Glorious Creator
Nature bows to thee
The trees all wave and birds sing praise
They testify to me

I lift my hands and give my words
To songs of praise for He is worthy
Every day from dawn to dusk
I sing my love to thee
I sing my love to thee

Merciful redeemer
Lord of Lords to me
He came to earth to give His life
So I could be set free


All of heaven all of earth
All of nature sings your worthy
From highest height to oceans deep
Creation shows your majesty
Witnessing your love for me


I love to walk early in the morning. The air is so crisp and clean. Even on a cloudy morning it smells like a new earth. But on a clear night, when the humidity is low and not a wisp of cloud is anywhere to be seen, my eyes light up. If there is a moon shining that night I wonder at it’s glorious shape. Be it half or crescent, like the Cheshire Cat smiling down at me, it is a glorious sight, riding across the sky like it does. When it is full, it lights my path almost like a dim sun. And when the new moon rises, those clear skies display majesty beyond belief. I walk out to the northern part of our bike trail, where the city lights go dim, to see the wonder of the heavens gloriously displayed. Every star placed there by your loving hand to guide us on our way. It is the most evident display of your great love for us.

Psalm 19:1-2 King James Version
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
