Peering out the car window, I see to the back of me a multitude of clouds. They are a rosy pink. To the left of me, a blue sky sits contentedly awaiting dawn. To my right, the vast prairie stretches farther than my eye can see. But at the end, where the sky touches the cold dark ground, a hazy gold lights the background. It's like a gold rim complimenting the black. And it keeps spreading all around.
Realizing what's happening, I grab my camera and video awaiting the inevitable. I video and wait.
Then like a golden jewel a diamond of pure liquid light erupts. I find myself breathless. It's more precious than any jewel! I watch the sun mount and grow wider, the horizon brighter, the sky a bit brighter, the stars gone and the moon fading away, honoring the sun's majesty. And as I watch the sun's glory as it begins it's rule over the sky, I thank God for creating sunrises.
