Some mornings you just have to wake up at 3:30, grab some friends and drive to the mountains to watch the sunrise. There is something so magical about watching the first bits of light rising above the horizon breaking through the mist and the morning chill bringing light and heat to everything around. Sunrise to me is a daily reminder that we are being constantly renewed and restored along with all of creation. A reminder that each day is a new chance to be who you were made to be. It's a chance to let the old die and to let the new be painted in.

"It's just death and resurrection, over and over again, day after day, as God reaches down into our deepest graves and with the same power that raised Jesus from the dead wrests us from our pride, our apathy, our fear, our prejudice, our anger, our hurt, and despair."

What are you going to allow to take shape in your life today? What will the sun symbolize for you?
