sunrise or sunset. you choose. {a summer series}

the sun comes up at 6 am and sets a little after 8 pm. 

if we go up the hill, we can catch dynamite sunrises. If we go to the beach and karl the fog is away, the sunset just might beat the sunrise. I’m guessing we’ll score the latter considering we’re growing teenagers this summer. the plan is to go this week on the last day of school and watch the sunset. but i'm more of a morning person and what calls louder than the sun is devil's teeth baking company. i highly recommend the "special" - a homemade biscuit packed with eggs, cheese, bacon, aioli, and avocado. 

back to the sun.

look at your calendar and plan a time to catch the sun rising or setting. check your weather app so you don't miss it! invite some friends to join you. this is a slowing down celebration of what the day can be and what the day has been.

is this the first time you've done this in your city? is it the last? reflect on what God has done and open yourself up to what He wants to show you - for He is good.  

pause.

To him who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever; the sun to rule over the day, for his steadfast love endures forever;the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever... Psalm 136:7-9

make this a sabbath moment. 

From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised! Psalm 113:3

give praise where it is due. the sun does.

Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars! Psalm 148:3
