preparing for the seventh day: stand at the window

The bad thing about a gorgeous sunrise is that you can’t describe it to someone else.

My patio door looks out on a row of snow-covered mountains.  I filled a mug with coffee and was walking quickly back downstairs to get back to work on the computer, but I happened to look out the window.

The mountains were on fire with the first light of this new day.

Proverbs 4:16 says, “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”

The seventh day was made for standing at the window with hands wrapped around a steaming morning beverage.  Remember, this hard life isn’t all there is.  See the flaming colors of the day coming.  The day with no tears and no sighing. 

On this seventh day we will stop the chores.  Stop trying to accomplish.  Stop doing.  Enjoy the sunrise and with it the hope of a new day coming.
