One of my joys when we were living in New Smyrna Beach, Florida was the first light shining on the pond from our Lanai. I knew I would miss that. But, on the other hand, I absolutely adore first light in the desert, too. Sunsets and sunrises are simply gorgeous. And from our bedroom window on the second floor, we can even see the lights from the Strip.
Here’s the view from our living room window – the photo is from my iPhone and doesn’t do it justice:
The view of our “Tree of Life,” as we like to call it. Reminds us of Animal Kingdom.
I like to get up at first light, say the Divine Office along with the audio, write in my journal, and sip my coffee. It’s quiet and contemplative.
I think it’s important to focus on what we have during this difficult time for everybody. And this is my blessing.
