A new dawn, a new day"; you may also have read yesterday's "The light of memory". That post was light-hearted, but I am more reflective today. For December 15th's photo prompt of "the miracle of light", I refer to both that August post as well as the photo above. Yes, another sunrise.
The rising of the sun should be special for everyone, I think. Aren't we all grateful, really, to be here? I know I am. The words I shared in that earlier blog post will tell you that. I know there is a time for everything, which can certainly be hard to accept -- last Christmas we were very subdued, reflecting on our loss of Terra. Others have felt loss since then, are grieving now -- the most recent news being the sad death of the husband of one of our very own artistic community members. And one of the captain's co-workers was recently injured in a house fire and may not pull through. All so very heartbreaking.
Words can soothe, but they can't heal, not on their own. I believe in words, in their power ... but only time can truly bring peace. With each new day though, each sunrise, I think we can all be thankful for the blessings we have and especially for the ones we have had. The sunrise is a reminder of all that is good. Is it a miracle of light? I definitely think so.
