Good morning! We were greeted with this beautiful sunrise while we were out for an early cycle. The rays were so gentle, yet so bright and they illuminated all the different types of clouds which were hanging out together in the skies! We paused many times to take in the changing beauty and I couldn’t help but notice how many others along the PCN didn’t stop to look and marvel. Why was that the case? Was this too common a sight for them that they have grown numb? Or, did they simply miss this because they were not present at that moment and were too preoccupied in their minds? It is too easy and convenient to miss out on the simple joys in life. We haven’t been out cycling in the morning for some time too. May we all learn to number our days so that we may gain a heart of wisdom! :) #morning #sunrise #nature #singapore #simplejoys

We woke up really early this morning to catch the sunrise. But as we rode along the river, the clouds started to close in and even though we rode on, it wasn’t with much hope that we would see anything beautiful. Indeed, when we reached the bridge at Lorong Halus, the sky was already turning bright and still the sun remained shrouded behind the looming clouds. Slightly disappointed, we turned back and comforted ourselves with the prospect of a hearty breakfast. A few minutes later, we turned our heads to catch a last glimpse behind, and to our joy we saw the sun emerging splendidly from the mountain of clouds. What a sight. Yes, no matter what our plans are for today, tomorrow, next year – life happens. Sometimes we get what we desire, sometimes we don’t. But today we are reminded that we can always face this life with hope, because our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. When we think we have missed the sunrise, let’s remember to look around us and ask ourselves, “Did I miss something?” #sunrise #hope #joy
