Keepers of the Dawn

The clarion call of the Maker awakens me and summons me to come and witness the dawning of the day with Him.

DSC_0054-002It will be a day like no other; when the Artist of artistry will paint His finest masterpiece across the sky for one showing only.

DSC_0002A premier of preeminence reserved especially for those who respond early to the special invite He has sent to witness His creative genius.  The air is cool and crisp. The wind gusts sting my face, causing tears to fall from my eyes; still I stand at the pier waiting.

DSC_0032-009 - CopyI see the keepers of the dawn compete for a prominent place on the pilings.  They eye their audience of one with curiosity and suspicion.  Too few come to hear the silence in the of the rising of the sun. Too few come to observe  this dance of first light by the keepers of the dawn. They question my presence. Will I act accordingly?

DSC_0085-005 - CopyOr with eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear will I become an unwanted intrusion on the horizon of peacefulness on this stage set in perfection for the upcoming production.

DSC_0070-002 - CopyRespectfully I position myself quietly and slowly to center stage, camera ready to capture this once in a lifetime artistic production.

DSC_0003With a nod of his head, the keeper of the dawn signals and the show begins. I stand, in awe by what I see.

DSC_0024 - CopyAs the dancers take flight, the Artist rises and silently begins to paint the first masterpiece of the day.

DSC_0008In the predawn hours of the morning, something mystical and magical takes place.

DSC_0010The heavenly hosts descend; light overpowers the darkness and my heart is fill with joy.

DSC_0031-007 - CopyI wish for you.  I wish you could witness the majesty of His hand… to see what I see and feel as I feel.

DSC_0105-005 - CopyI have seen the refreshing of a new day.  I feel the reassurance that today will be different than yesterday.

DSC_0096-005 - CopyThe sun reveals the Son. Although I stand alone, I am not alone.

DSC_0170-001I feel the glory of His Presense.

DSC_0037-001 - CopyI follow the sun for it is the pathway to the Son.

DSC_0033I am refreshed, rejuvenated and restored as the dawn of a new day lights my way,

DSC_0058-007 - CopyNo longer alone, absent of despair.

DSC_0284In His light

DSC_0286-001like the keepers of the dawn, I dance,

DSC_0065-006 - Copytransformed Forever.

But if we walk in the light,

as he is in the light,

we have fellowship one with another,

and the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.

1 John 1:7
