As the Sun Rises Over the Hill

As the sun rises over the hill to my East I hear dogs barking, and I wonder what is the dogs barking at.  I rise up from my chair to look and see, but they are only barking because they want out of their pen.  That will come a little later.

As the sun rises over the hill there are many thoughts that run through my mind.  Thoughts of dread, fear, anguish; yet also thoughts of hope, peace, love, joy, and my Lord Jesus Christ.  These latter things cancel out the other to some extent where they are not so binding.  It’s amazing how thought of Christ can set  you free.

As the sun rises over the hill the light gets brighter, everything becomes more clear.  Isn’t that what the Light of Christ is also about.

As the Son rises in our hearts, darkness vanishes.
