One morning my schedule was flip-flopped, so that I was traveling to a different work station. I found myself driving east out of Richmond on a very busy interstate during rush hour. Too early for me.
Forced to look where I was going (!) I met the most spectacularly vivid sunrise I had ever witnessed. A Grand Canyon sunrise could not have rivaled the sun emerging from behind the hills and the traffic before me. We think that we must be in the midst of nature to experience it, but the mundane urban surroundings made the sunrise even more beautiful.
I wondered how many other drivers noticed it. Perhaps they are used to the show. Or perhaps it was God’s special gift to me at a moment when it was needed.
