Sunset into Sunrise

Hello, friends!  How are you?  I hope all is well and that you all had wonderful weekends.  Scott and I had a great weekend together.  For the past few weeks, we've taken road trips out of town to visit family.  It was really nice to stay at home for a weekend, relax, and enjoy one another's company.

Sometimes, it's hard to get back into the groove of things when Monday rolls around....well, a lot of times it is.  But this morning I woke up thinking about something that motivated me.  I woke up thinking about my last sunrise in Uganda--it was so beautiful {see picture below}!  Although I took the trip 4 months ago, the memories I made over there stay fresh in my mind and in my heart-- and the 3,500+ photos I took certainly help with that.

You know, a few years ago, if asked whether I love sunrises or sunsets more I would answer "sunsets" without hesitation.  But my answer would be different today.  There's so much hope that comes with a sunrise.  To me, a sunrise is symbolic of new beginnings, a fresh start, the promise of light...so beautiful.  Now, I would have to say I appreciate sunrises more than sunsets.

Have a great week!

My Last Sunrise in Uganda


  1. This is so pretty! Wishing you a great week!

  2. How very beautiful. I think both sunrises and sunsets are such blessings -- such breathtaking signs of God's presence in our lives, and how He fill us, continually, with hope, and peace. So glad to have discovered your lovely blog :)

  3. I had to learn to appreciate sunrises (especially on Monday mornings)! Both are such a blessing though, one signifying a new beginning, and the other a reflection on all that was good throughout your day. Wishing you a great week...
