I was running the other morning and admiring the beautiful sunrise we were having in West Dallas. Despite the rampant ugliness that plagues this part of the city, we do have some of the best sunrises and sunsets I've ever seen. It's probably the pollution, but I always think God is giving us a wink when He blesses us with His artistry, especially in the morning when few are even awake to appreciate it.
These sunrises are definitely a distraction for me because when I look down, I can get focused on the decay, the trash, and other miscellaneous stuff I find on the road.
Yes, that's some Mary Jane, you know, reefer, hooch, weed, pot, homegrown...
Just a lyin' in the street- waitin' for some kid to find it and decide he wants to give it a try.
I picked it up and brought it home to flush it and then kept running, thanking the Lord for His presence, His help, and His sunrise.
