If I hadn't been running late, I wouldn't have captured this photo below. The sun. The brightness. The way it fit so perfectly in the angel's lantern. It was mesmerizing, and it was perfect.
It wasn't the easiest photo to take. It was the tenth one I attempted. But time (which I didn't have) and patience (which I'm constantly working on) paid off. I've cropped out the drainboard (and the dishes) that sits below the shelf where those figurines stand. I'll get to putting those dishes away later. For now, I'm reflecting on that glorious sunrise and how I will shine my light for others today.
...your light must shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your heavenly Father...
