Opportunities are like sunrises - if you wait too long, you miss them

William A Ward

One morning I took time to stop and watch the colors change as the sun peeped up over the horizon and then bloomed in all its glory, making it impossible to look directly into its blinding rays. It reminded me that life is very much like a sunrise.

Life lived out, no matter how many years on this earth, is a mere blink of the eye compared to eternity. During the course of that lifetime many changes take place. Sometimes the sun is completely obscured by the storm clouds of life; however, no matter how hard the storms may rage, or how dark the world may become around us, the sun is still shining. It is only temporarily hidden from our view.

How wonderful!

It always shines again!

I remember my first trip in an airplane. It was a cloudy dark day when I arrived at the airport, but once the plane took off and rose above the clouds the sun was shining brilliantly.

Sometimes we need to rise above the dark days life throws our way and soar to where the sun is shinning. The sun rises and sets each day. Every morning it starts it's ascent in the horizon.
Every day we can begin again too.

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday everyone!

Behind the clouds shines the sun, as it always does - even at night.
