Because of an annoying habit of sleeping late, I always miss the sunrise. It’s a shame, really, not to get to see the yellows and pinks of a brand new day. It is the time of day that holds great promise, a new beginning, a fresh start, a time to begin new projects and tasks, maybe even a time to dream a new dream.
Seeing the sunrise is a reminder that, whatever the problems of the night, the sun always rises and gives new light to our lives.
Bernard Williams wrote these words: “There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.”
Perhaps sunrise is a gift that brings us hope every day. And hope is the one thing that we desperately need. It gives us the strength to move forward and to anticipate a day brighter and better than we have ever experienced. The sunrise reminds us.
May your new day be filled with new hope as bright as the sunrise, new chances to start anew, new dreams to fulfill the longing of your heart.
