Happy Earth Day,
My bedroom windows face the east and so every morning the sun shines through my windows. But today on Earth Day I only saw a glimmer of the sun early this morning. It rained all day here in Maryland. Even still on Earth Day I salute the sun, it is my favorite. Can you tell by the sunflowers? I love them too.
My hope rises every morning with the sun. It is such a constant in my life. I say to myself as the sun rises I will rise as well.
After watching a show about sungazing I contemplated it. And although it’s easier for me to stare into the sun now, there’s something about losing my eyesight that snaps me out of it. Instead I’ll appreciate the warmth and power of the sun. I’ll appreciate it’s life-giving power, without it we would not survive. I’ll be thankful for the light and energy I receive from it and I’ll strive to be a beacon of light for others.
