October is coming and the days are noticeably shorter. Back in June when we arrived at Sager Brown the sun was fully up when I went to breakfast at about 7:15. Now the morning look is entirely different. Many, many years ago when we used to go to a river in north central Arkansas to trout fish my mother-in-law used to tell me I should get up to see the sun rise over the river. I had three small children and was perpetually exhausted like most young mothers so the very thought of getting up early on a weekend on purpose was like a bad joke. Today I know why she said that. I look at this scene and it’s like God is saying “Look what I did for you today Marlene.” The peace that overcomes me when I’m standing there defies description. It’s a beautiful way to start the day.
