Yet another beautiful sunrise - as the darkness which had enveloped the earth flees the coming sun.  The wisps of cloud covering the eastern sky, previously invisible in the darkness, blaze with color like banners marching ahead of the honored victor as he enters his land after conquering the foe in a far-off realm.  A triumphant entrance, a victory parade.  Each day we are reminded of Christ's coming in glory and victory as darkness flees at the mere sight of his face.
