Delight on Its Way – Repost

Early one morning I took a quick look out my window. The light was rising; the sky was clear; it was brightening.

It was a pleasant unremarkable scene. I turned to checking email.

In a few minutes I felt an impulse to turn back to the window. Gazing, I drew in my breath feeling astonishment.

The horizon line was bright with oranges and yellows.

As my eyes rose, I beheld layers of color, purples in stripes, all through the clouds. The sky was completely infused with color. Extraordinary and Delightful!

More than ten years ago I experienced a similar effect. A glance out the window, a morning light that was pleasant and ordinary, then a little while later, as I scraped off my car, I looked again: A sunrise brilliant with strong mauve, oranges, yellows and pink.

This was no pastel view of sky: these colors were intense and vibrant. The vista was so unexpected…

How innocently I had looked outside to see an average morning. I had no idea what delight was in store.

I was about to be infused with Grace and I had no clue. Isn’t that something of which to take note! Fabulous events show up without warning!

More and more now, I watch for good things to unfold in my experience. Fun to track them as they do come.  Attracting delightful experiences as bit by bit they show up for me.

Please share some delights that you have attracted. What gorgeous scene did you come upon unexpectedly?

Or what did a human do that was fabulous and so unexpected? Comment on the browser version– and smile.
