So…. this morning I woke up as usual at 4:45 and the first thing that popped into my head was “Why do I do this to myself?” Grumpily I got out of bed and onto the bus… About 45 minutes into the ride I found my top reason.
Rural Nebraska at sunrise. I”m not one for sunrises, but that’s probably because I live in the city. Out there, there is nothing between you and the sky. the sky stretches out before you. It’s the color of the ocean. no clouds, just streaks of orange and purple. The sun is a red ball that is rising out of a grove of distant trees. The trees are Dark blue along with everything else on the horizon, because of fog and distance. The ground is covered in everything and anything green. in valleys and depressions there is swirling white fog. there’s a foot of clarity just above the ground and then thick white fog. The sky is so big. The colors are all sharp and blend well together. And then there’s a small pond with fog over it. gorgeous
God is awesome.
it took waking up at 4:45 AM and riding out to the middle of nowhere for me to fully understand this.
