Something I've never done before...

is watch the sun rise in the morning.
I dont know why it took me so long.

On our recent roadtrip we had a lovely suite
 in Amelia Island that overlooked the ocean.
Normally I'm the type of  fraidy-cat that sleeps
with all windows and doors locked tight...
but with this view and the sounds of the waves crashing
we slept with the balcony doors and the curtains wide open.
I can't remember a better, deeper sleep.
It was heaven.
This is what we woke up to every morning.

I admit that when I first woke up
and saw the clock I was a bit grumpy...
with my running schedule
I very rarely get the chance to sleep past 5:30am 
but I told myself that this wasn't an everyday occurrence
so I got up and made my way to the balcony.
As I sat watching I felt guilty for my ungrateful attitude.
 How many people get to sit in such beautiful surroundings
and watch the sun's beauty greet the day?
 Such a lovely reminder of God's greatness.
How about you?
Have you ever watched the sun rise or set?
Take the time.
You won't regret it.
