Why you should always have a camera handy

September 21, 2007 — 2 Comments

Sometimes you get distracted when you set aside time in the mornings to go read, and this happens

There’s something quite powerful about getting up early in the morning and just being alone in solitude. Especially if you happen to live in a large city, and also happen to have access to a parking garage roof that semi overlooks the skyline. It can do wonders for your soul to simply be awake early enough for there to be silence as you observe everything surrounding you and in silence converse with an all powerful all knowing God. Or munch on Kashi cereal. Or actually, you really can do both, as sometimes you might need to multi-task if you also have to be at work at 445am. Breakfast is a must, but nourishing the soul is even more important, so I try to make time for both. Tonight is no exception, and since I have the wonderful privilege of opening tomorrow morning, I should probably go to bed. To help visualize this rooftop experience, here’s what it looks like in the daytime, or more accurately, dusktime:

Not the best depiction, but you get the idea.

More later. Pictures and words. Together.

  1. Wow man, that’s a sweet photo. And yes, there is something about getting up early to be quiet before God. Often what happens is unexpected, the things you learn and what gets laid on your heart. Its awesome, especially when your taking in the beauty of His creation.

    Anyways, I think I’m gonna keep reading your blog. I’m enjoying this.

  2. wow! šŸ™‚ that is beautiful. You are absolutely right about the stillness in the morning. I’ve got quite a busy schedule.., but friday mornings i have a 7:00 class and then an opening from 7 to 8.. and it is beautiful! šŸ™‚ i’m up . so i stay up. and my time with God seems so empty of distractions and so refreshing. I ought to commit to getting up earlier every day.. but its hard … good thoughts šŸ™‚ love the starbucks
