before the sun

before the sun

Before the sun rises, when the house is quiet and dark, there is a beautiful holy silence that calls to me. It is in these hours before the sun rises that I connect the pieces of my days. Without these moments, I am scattered and the day is blurred.  It takes time and discipline to go to bed early in order to wake early, but once you have formed this rhythm, you will see…you will see.

May you awaken to the call of the early morning darkness, heat a pot of tea, light a candle and see what comes next. My heart speeds up a little as I write these words with the excitement of just one person entering these silent times that change days.
