The Early Show

We’re morning people. Correction: we’re before-the-crack-of-dawn people. We’re in rarified company with shift-workers and donut-bakers, partly because of necessity (work and early-rising pets) but mostly out of habit. The benefits of rising before the roosters are few but oh, so worthwhile: coffee always tastes better before dawn, and sometimes we get to witness a dazzling show in the eastern sky, as we did this morning. Sure beats anything that would be playing on the back of our eyelids!

If the telephone rings before daybreak on Saturday, we know who it is. Hubby's nephew, Rob, who's also a pre-dawn person, calls from Montana to discuss the latest family event or an upcoming football game. He's already back from his weekly grocery shopping at Walmart, where he beat the usual weekend crowd—by several hours!

Through the heartfelt mercies of our God, God's Sunrise will break in upon us.
