Sumpter Sunrise

This was originally shot in October 2009. In addition to cropping it, I played around with the foreground.

"When the song of the angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flocks, the work of Christmas begins: to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among the people, to make music in the heart." - Howard Thurman

PS - most of all, make music in the heart.
