Skywatch Friday Thoughts and More

Lookin' Out My Back Door

I don't remember exactly when I took this photo.  It's been in the past couple of months.  It is a sunrise taken from the deck on the rear of our home.  A wooded green space joins our property and that's why all of the branches are present.  The whole pattern makes for some wonderful sunrise opportunities in the fall and winter.  
Sunrises remind me that God has given me a fresh start.  Lord knows I need a fresh start, because I have usually made a mess of yesterday.  I can spend a few minutes seeking His forgiveness for my less than Christian actions yesterday, seek guidance for today, and pray that He will renew a spirit of obedience within me.  Tomorrow we start, not only a new day, but a new year.  What will you do with the opportunity to start fresh?
The inspirational song for this last day of the year is a reminder of who God is.  He is the "Alpha and Omega".  Enjoy.
