You may have noticed the orange sun that highlights my home page. It’s found on all my marketing materials. When I was brainstorming with my graphic artist a number of years ago, we selected that particular color for its artistic value. Now, however, I realize I chose the color for a deeper reason.
Have you ever risen early just as dawn was waking? The night is giving way to a new day. As you wait, the sun slowly peeps over the horizen. Its orange hue tinged with red brings with it the opportunity for a fresh, new life. How often do we stop and celebrate the rising of the sun?
As dusk approaches, the sun’s rays gradually subside as it begins to recede behind the horizen. At a certain point, however, we see the orb take on a rich orange tinged with red, reminding us that soon this day will merge into the black night.
Can we slip out the back door of our outcome-driven lives and rest, if only for a few moments, in the immensity of the universe?
