Greeting the Rising Sun!

Earlier this week, my sweet oldest tiptoed into my room where I lay dozing, enveloped in the cozy warmth of blankets and nestled next to my heat emitting hubby!

He greeted me with a whispered question.  "Could we go meet the "rising sun?" 

The boys had whispered late the night before, and I figured they would forget the idea I had to go meet the rising sun...  But my 'morning person' son was ready to go and I could hear Greta stirring in her room.  So we bundled up.  {Rich made fun of my Oma's fur hat, but this desert girl knew she'd be COLD.}

We had recently been discussing how Zechariah described Jesus as the "Rising Sun" coming from heaven to "shine on those living in darkness" in our Truth in the Tinsel advent devotional. {Can I just say that I'm so thankful for the printable ornaments? I'm just not feeling crafty this year!}   We had talked about how light overcomes darkness and I had suggested getting up to meet the 'rising sun' in our tiny desert hill a block from our home.

Bleary eyed, I rolled out of bed, caught up in the anticipation of meeting with THE Rising Son and greeting the rising sun.  It was beautiful.  We soaked up the dawn of a new day and communion with Jesus.  I couldn't help but pray that my life could be like the scattered clouds reflecting the beauty and glory of the Rising Sun!
