Rise and set.

“Sunrises are my favorite,” she said, the wind whipping our hair as we shot down the highway in an open-back truck with eight other people (and twice as much baggage). “I like them better than sunsets.”

How could anyone like anything better than a sunset, God’s ravishing display of His love for us in brilliant reds, purples, and pinks?

And yet…
This sunrise lit up the land of smiles. The marks of a new beginning in a series of many.
Three stops, two countries, six weeks, and too many bus, plane, and car rides to count were behind us; a whole new city of surprises before us.
The sun was rising on a new page in the most thrilling chapter of my life thus far—and I’m not sure I ever want it to end.
