613. But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? ~William Shakespeare

Here comes the sun
and I say, it’s all right…
Little darlin’, it seems like years
since it’s been clear….
~Excerpted lyrics by John Lennon
George Harrison, and Paul McCartney

Degree by degree by degree a glow appears on the eastern horizon. Brighter and lighter it grows as inch by inch by inch the sun lifts night’s shades higher and higher revealing a cloudless sky was washed clean of the cold, greys of past days. Up and up and up rises the blaze of the sun, ancient bearer of light and warmth and cheer. In the rising incandescence the busy birds are chirpier, the scampering squirrels are friskier, and the prowling feral cats are bushy-tailed. The sun, the sun, the marvelous sun–now it’s kissing the tips and tops of things before oozing and spreading like melting butter on a warm piece of toast over everything it touches. The morning air, charged with electricity in anticipation of its fullness, is kindling a warmer rhythm for this wintry day, and when the first splinters of the sun’s golden rays finally run across the garden and lawn, the dance of life will pulse strong again in hearts and feet alike. And then, when there is light, glorious, glorious light, we shall rise and greet thee, O Lord, with glad and grateful hearts.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. ~Genesis 1:3-4   ✝

    • Oh I so hope that it comes over you soon as well. It was such a welcome respite from the gloomy grayness. I was beginning to think the sun had died. I’m so glad my post gave you hope, my little cold, soggy Georgia Peach. Hugs, N ❤

    • You are always in my thoughts and prayers too, Matthew. And I’m sorry I haven’t been as good at commenting and conversations lately. I tend to withdraw, not qive up or give in, but like a cat go off to be by myself more when things get tough. You are fighting such a harder battle than I right now, but my life has been one filled since my mid-20’s with a great deal of physical pain of one kind or another. And so it often takes all of my focus not to get discouraged or question the why of it all. The Lord has blessed my life if more ways than I’ve ever deserved, and I fight gulit feelings about my inability to put it all down and just TRUST Him. He’s brought me through so much and even gave me a new chance at life two years ago. But introspection can be a good and healing thing and I’ve learned to give myself persmission to back away when I feel like I need too. This morning was the first time in days that I felt like myself again for a while. Thank you so much for your concern and prayers. I truly do appreciate and need them. Much love and huge hugs, N ❤ ❤ ❤
