left / as i was getting ready for my sunrise run, i noticed that a peculiar light was flooding our home. vibrant pink and purple hues were diffusing through our windows making every surface glow with a royal warmth. i popped outside and was greeted by this majestic sight. it only lasted for a moment and then vanished. suddenly shifting into the familiar diurnal blue. what an awesome way for the night to break into dawn. what a spectacular display of beauty. what a dramatic contrast. dim to luminous. dark to brilliant. // the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. for to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (isaiah 9:2,6)
