The wind in the clouds and the blue in the sky
The sun and the moon and the stars so high
That’s what draws me to You

I am, I’m captivated by You
In all that you do, I am
I’m captivated

Here comes the sun

Here are some photos of the sun that I’ve taken over the past several weeks that I’ve been meaning to post up.

gap in the clouds

I was in the library at uni one day doing some research and downloading some updates (taking advantage of the faster-than-at-home wi-fi :P). I can’t remember if I stood up and looked out or if I looked up at the window that was sort of hiding behind the top of the desk I was working at. But I looked out and saw this amazing image of the sun’s rays emerging from a gap in the clouds. It had been really cloudy in the recent days/weeks (it was usually forecasted to rain), and to see just a bit of sunshine brought joy to whoever saw it. I know I sound really cheesy right now, but it’s the truth. Taken with my brand new iPhone 4S, September 17 2012, 5:33PM.

Taken on Saturday, May 5, sometime between 5 and 6 PM. I guess by now you can probably tell that I really like sunsets. On Saturday we celebrated my brother’s twenty-first birthday with a BBQ party at the house. My sister and I were helping my mum prepare food and put up decorations, and I […]

Taken on Thursday, May 3 at 5:06 PM. My Thursdays are usually 9 AM to 4 or 5 PM at uni (with a 3 or 4 hour break, mind you), and after my last class I have to rush home and get ready for “work”, which begins at either 5 or 6 PM. I teach […]

Second sunrise

In February we had our annual church family beach day. This is usually held on or around Australia Day (January 26, for any non-Australian readers), but due to the crazy wet weather we had this summer, the beach day had to be postponed to February 25. We went to Newport Beach for our church family bonding and water baptisms, but prior to that, three of my girlfriends and I went to the beach a little earlier to watch the sun rise.

I’m a night person and I love my sleep, but I will take any chance to go see a sunrise at the beach. On this particular day, though, it was a tad cloudy, particularly at the horizon. We arrived at Curl Curl (or was it Dee Why?) beach and found a spot on the rocks that overlooked a fishing spot. It was already quite bright—we had arrived about 15 minutes after the weather forecast said the sun was going to rise—but we couldn’t actually see the sun. Above the horizon was a strip of clouds, and behind that, the risen sun. But in a way we still got to see the sun rise because as we sat there, the sun rose from behind the clouds.
