I get up, look at the window and open it.
I see nothing but dark sky, but then it happens.
As the coolness caresses my nakedness, I see a hint glow in the sky.
That hint turns into a bright orange, red, and yellow.
That turns into the most beautiful show of the sky I have seen.
That gives me new life and a new way to thank God for me to see this.
Which is why I love the sunrise.
