I just returned from a wonderful family vacation at the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I am not one to wake up for a sunrise but one morning, without setting my alarm, I woke up about 30 minutes before sunrise. I knew instantly what I had to do. I threw some clothes on, grabbed my camera (and a beach chair last minute) and walked to the beach which was just a few houses down the road. I know that witnessing a beautiful sunrise/sunset can be hit or miss since you have to be in your spot before the actual event. Well, this one was a beauty. I knew I was meant to witness this glorious event and thanked God for waking me up so I could behold this amazing gift. It was definitely a cherry on top of already a wonderful and blessed vacation.
