Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Words Dot Not Adequately Describe My Sunrise~

Twice this week, I had to attend to the call of fuel for my auto again;),
and twice...I viewed breathtaking sunrises! 

These were taken in my oldest daughter's neighborhood...Crystal Lake.
 
While filling the fuel tank, I glanced across the lane and saw what was happening in the heavens, and hurried up to pay my bill so that I could encounter the beauty close up.
 
The lake was partially covered in ice chunks and the reflections from the sunrise above, were like precious jewels.
 
This is the first of 2 special sunrises at Crystal Lake for this week.  I will share the second one next week.
 
All of my Crystal Lake posts are taken from the same place, yet every morning a different sky is painted here and in all places of the earth and each one is a marvel to proclaim.

Happy SkyWatching, Happy SkyWatch Friday~

Note... I am dedicating this post to a very special lady...
~ Marcia Davis ~ 

She lost her battle to ALS on February 4th.  She was a friend, a wife, a mother and a grandmother.  She was a wonderful person and those whom had the pleasure of having known her, we will miss her and sweet spirit!

Blessings to her husband Dale and son Scott and family~
