North Street Beach | 5:18 am-6:31 am

A cloudy start to another lovely Chicago day.  The sun tried her best to break through the thick coverage but was not too successful.  I loved watching all the hues of blue dance before me as I poured over Psalm 104.  The clouds shifted above me every few moments, changing the light and causing so much joy in my heart.  Magic.  

Sometimes I just need to be at the water.  I attribute that to my father, and my California roots.  5:00 am is a good time for city dwellers who are looking for some quiet.  With nothing but early morning commuters, joggers, & bakery delivery trucks the city takes on a different personality.  

One I happen to love.
