Sunrise Through The Trees

 I had every intention of sleeping in this morning.  I've looked forward to sleeping in for the past two days.  But, I woke up at 4:30.. AM...wwwwwhyyy?  I laid there in my warm bed willing myself to go back to sleep and I actually did doze off again. When my eyes fluttered open at 5:30, I knew it was fruitless to beg sleep to come back again, so I climbed out of bed. I brushed my teeth, made a cup of coffee, ruffled Sadie's fur and then headed downstairs to add some wood to the stove.  Unfortunately, our heat pump had a malfunction yesterday and needs a new part, our house was kept warm overnight from the wood stove in our basement. After loading the stove with wood and spending a few minutes to make sure everything was good with it, I came back upstairs.
 Another cup of brew in hand, I stood looking out the window, my gaze was met by this beautiful sunrise.  I grabbed my camera and ran outside to snap a few photos before its spectacular colors faded into the warm sunny day we have. I would have missed this glorious sight... if I had slept in.

Hope your day is sunny

And it is truly beautiful! I need to wake up earlier so I can be met with such a sight.

Must be why God woke you up so you could see it.

You definitely received a blessing in waking up. That had to set the mood for the rest of your day. Hope you've since gotten your heat but to normal. I enjoy reading your beautiful writings as much as seeing your photos.
