This morning I was up before dawn. Actually, I awoke at 3am after nodding off around 1am, and when by 5am I wasn't back to sleep I finally decided to just get up. Out to the balcony I headed with laptop (and iPhone) in hand. My plan was to read a lot (only read a little) and then to write some (I simply re-edited my blog from yesterday).
The truth is, God captured and held much of my attention by His glorious display. I found myself watching the varying light and color transitions of night into morning, and several times I stood to photograph the stages of daybreak with my camera. I only wish that the camera lens could capture the same colors that my eye saw, but this is nonetheless beautiful.
