If you are reading this, you will know my internet is back on. You know how it is, the everyday struggle. We come to an obstacle and meet it with force. We want things to be another way. I spent two hours on the telephone last Friday, trying to sort a problem with our stereo which works off the wireless network in our home. (You get the short version of this.) That led me to a problem with the router that provides the wireless network. The router needed its software updated. We selected ‘yes’. It seems the update ‘broke its spirit’… and by that I mean, it broke. Though the router is only 9 months old, it was done with life as we know it. If I have learned nothing, I have learned with IT problems ‘this too shall pass’. Of course it happened on a Friday, after the express post service cut-off deadline. And so I waited four days, to receive the warranty replacement. I had to pay for express freight, even though we live outside the overnight zone. What did I do with myself in the early morning, when I would normally read email and blog posts?
I did a thing I have been meaning to do for years.
I watched and photographed an entire sunrise while Celtic Woman sang in my ears…
See the paradise with me
Awake and arise with me
I am the dawn, I’m the new day begun
I bring you the morning, I bring you the sun
I hold back the night and I open the skies
I give light to the world, I give sight to your eyes
From the first of all time, until time is undone
Forever and ever and ever and ever
And I am the dawn and the sky and the sun
I am one with the One, and I am the dawn
I am the sky and the dawn and the sun
I am the sky and new day begun
I am the sky and the dawn and the sun.”
–The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun, by Celtic Woman
Have a wonderful day.
