"Get outside. Watch the sunrise. Watch the sunset. How does that make you feel? Does it make you feel big or tiny? Because there's something good about feeling both." 

Amy Grant

This year I have derived a great deal of comfort going to my "watching place" to see a sunrise. No matter the difficulties of the day before, a new sunrise brings me back to the awe of creation. 

  All things testify of Him. Where there is darkness there will be light. This cycle of day and night is a routine that I feel grounds my spiraling, out of control mind. It reminds me that I am on a planet, fashioned by divine design. 

 I have been writing with the Five Minute Friday group for three years and I really enjoy the talented writers who share themselves each week.


  1. I agree. Seeing the wonders of God in the nature is comforting. Especially a sunrise/sunset over the ocean. Thanks for sharing! Blessings to you!

  2. It is comforting to remember that God is in charge and that there is an order to things despite the seeming chaos at times. I love the photo!

  3. I like the quote you used. Good choice with your post and how creation is a grounding comfort. I agree. Beautiful photo!

  4. Sunrise...I love it.

    It means that I have survived another long and terrifying night of pain. And other things, humiliations of which I will forbear to speak.
