I thought of you this morning as I stood in the cool fall air watching the sun create such a beautiful sunrise. There are few things that touch my heart like the beauty of nature……someday I hope to get them all in one place. To stand in this awesome sunrise and share it so completely with you would be so wonderful. With your arms around me and you so close that nothing else in the world would matter. The quiet of the morning, the coolness of the breeze, and the warmth of your body close to mine. Those few minutes when there is nothing that needs said, or done, or even thought about. Just the quiet of nature, the beating of hearts, and the breathing of two people. Then into the house and share hot coffee and the smell of bacon cooking. That would all make this perfect sunrise the most perfect day.
You wonder why I say that I hope the sun kisses you gently on the cheek in the morning or that it hugs you with all its warmth? We often get too busy to even notice the sunrise or the sunset. Too busy with life to see what life really has to offer. Texas has the best of both. God seems to take great pleasure with the colors and clouds as he paints the beginning and ending of the day. To capture the real beauty of either is impossible. For I never seem to find the exact words for description, and the camera doesn’t add the feel and smell that goes with them. As hard as I try, the only true way to share them is with someone in person. The problem with that is that I am usually standing there alone. So, I add to it the words I can come up with and the picture that my camera can capture.
So, as the sun rose this morning and the clouds danced gently across the sky, I thought of you. I thought of how much my heart races at the very thought of you. How my senses drink in all of the beauty that abounds here. So in reality, I am never alone. Physically yes, but in my heart I am never alone. For in those few moments as the sun rises I am held tight in a wonderful hug of love and warmth.
Have a most blessed Sunday! A day filled with as much love as your heart can hold.
