I use the sunrise as a symbol of hope for the future, a reminder of the beauty of life and its gifts which endlessly renew themselves. It represents Gods "grace for grace", blessing upon blessing, and His overflowing favor. The sea also is of special importance for me and I prefer it over the landscape. There is no precise vanishing point in the sea, the entire horizon extends forever. The physical and the spiritual seem to express their mutual acquiescence to the others dominion, in perfect harmony and cooperation. The tangible world vanishes into the eternal.
