Yesterday’s spectacular sunrise was a welcome sight after the storm experienced on Monday. But today’s seemed at least as awesome. The accompanying chatter of Canada geese made both displays especially memorable.
I wonder if geese and other wild creatures take note of the beauty around them. When migrating geese wake up to rainy skies do they feel the same as they do when they awaken to a beautiful sunrise?
One thing’s for sure: clearer skies do improve visibility. But even if the eagle’s eyes have difficulty seeing in the rain or fog, I doubt if there are any complaints about it. Though the storms of life may slow them down, eagles still hunt and geese still migrate, regardless of the weather. Like the wild birds, our ability to wake up and get to the work set before us should not depend so much on external factors.
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.
However, there’s nothing like a beautiful sunrise to breathe new hope into the day that lies ahead.
