Too Beautiful

a swing from southeast to east


And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; and the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. ~Revelation 21:2, 11, 19-23

Magnificent!!! I wasn't up quite early enough to catch the sunrise, but I did arise in time to see that our deck was sprinkled with little white balls of something...snow?...sleet? I captured it on camera, but I don't know why as I won't be able to share the pics for a while cuz of this ornery computer!!! But your pics help make up for it. Thanks for sharing your sunrise!!

I ran across your blog by accident today, and as a born and bred Kansas girl who has been transplanted to Arizona, I love your blog!!! Thanks for the lovely sunrise and a taste of home.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love sunrise pictures, and the sky is an ever changing slideshow of God's glory. I love seeing the clouds wisp by...

Thanks for dropping by, Anon, and making the time to leave a note. Hoping you'll enjoy a nice, warm winter in sunny AZ, when we're snowy behind the ears here. Ü

Morgan, beautiful wordcraft. Ü

Cousin Annie, there's a young man here who's achin' all over for the first frozen precip. I hadn't known y'all already got some up there. Lean on your computer build-it man, so you can have your new machine and be fully operational. Lean hard. ;o)
