The sun has been rising beautifully at the farmhouse.  Yes, lately I  have been outside at the moment the sun breaks the horizon, which happens at about 6:05 where I live.  I love getting up early.  This morning I first woke at 2:30.  I didn't really get up until about 5:00 though. :o)  The older I get, the earlier I rise.  When I retire, I expect to stay up later and maybe will be able to sleep later.  That's a few years away, so for now, early to bed and early to rise is the rule around here.

Here are some samples of the sunrises during the last two weeks.

The farmer left the tractor here overnight.  This year soybeans have been planted in our surrounding fields.

This grain bin is pretty far off in the distance, so I cropped the picture to show more detail.  I need a different lens to capture it better
Maybe I'll go out and get some pictures of sunsets soon.  There are trees between our house and the sunset, so I would need to walk down in the field behind our house to get the shot.

I can't help but think of what an awesome world our Lord has provided for us.  The list of amazing things could go on and on.  But, the sun is so beyond my understanding.  Without it we would die.  45 minutes before it rises, it starts to get light outside.  Once it breaks the horizon, it moves very quickly up into the sky. I am just in awe of it.  Need to learn more facts about this thing that we live with every day!

I rarely see the sunrise, as I sleep too late. But when I do, I always think it's a good morning message from God. Your pic's are very pretty!
