Where there is hope

When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
~Author Unknown

morning

The theme is Hope this week at:ISBFL_Button

I am all out of inspirational things to say today.

Go visit Drew and her fantastic blog headers.

The girl is amazing.

drew's store Every time she sends me an email or talks to me

I am in AWE that I get to be her friend.

Seriously.

What do you like better?

Sunrise or Sunset?

That's such a hard one. I love both. Is it okay if I just say both and not pick one or the other? Lol. Both parts of the day involve beautiful, breath-taking colors. I remember I stayed at an old friend's house and could not for the life of me go to sleep, so I stayed up and watched the sun rise. It was so peaceful and romantic. It made me wish I got enough rest during the night to watch the sun rise every morning. So, in retrospect, maybe I prefer the sunrise. ;)

RR Mama said...

Those headers are awesome!! I like both! I love to look at the colors and different hues God uses to amaze me. Each one is so beautiful!

Marla said...

Susets.. but only because I'm not a morning person. I love sunsets though. Most of my favorite pictures were taken at sunset.

Kelly said...

Sunset most of the time. Sunrise if I've been up all night with my sweetie and we can sleep all day to recover.

Spencer L Casey said...

Easy. Sunset. I'm a night person. Sunset signifies risk, excitement, magic, desire and so much more. The only time a sunrise beats a sunset is if I've been up all night.

Cheers,

SLC

very nice, i've just started seeing these...i would've though they would slow the loading (i have very slow wireless) but they don't...i have to be very careful of what i put on my blog...any background or templates take way too long for me to load.

The Incredible Woody said...

If I were meant to enjoy the sunrise, it would happen MUCH later in the day:)

Kristina P. said...

Definitely sunset. I'm never awake for sunrise!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Although I hate being awake so early to see the sun rise, there is always this feeling of awe over a brand new day that I love when I see the sun rising. They are both beautiful though.

Amy said...

Ooh, tough choice. I'd have to say sunset, because I love the feeling of a successful day drawing to a close.

Also, I love the quote you started with. I have it written on a post-it note that is taped to my desk at work.

Drew said...

Rebeckah,

I'm pretty sure that I'm the lucky one!

Sunrise or Sunset?
I think I like sunrises the best. They are a perfect start to the day. On the other hand, sunsets remind me of my childhood with fireflies, campfires and chilly nights spent star-gazing.

Thanks for being so supportive of my entrepreneurial attempt! :)

Mc Allen said...

I would say sunrise, but Ive not seen many. The ones Ive seen were soooo beautiful!! ~ theres just his energy in a sunrise :) xoxo LA

Pumpkin Delight said...

Sunsets! Sunrises are too early in the morning for me. :)
I love photographing sunsets too.

christy rose said...

I would say sunset since I am seldom ever up for the sunrise. :) I love your new header. It is so cool!

Sonya said...

Sunset but thats only because Im not awake for the sun rise..lol

Frau said...

Both are equally beautiful.

Marilyn said...

Sunrise, there is such promise in it. Hope. I can actually hope now. I am feeling stronger today. There is hope in me now. Hopefully I will recover and all will be well.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I shall choose: Sunset.
Sunrises come really early in the morning. Did you know that? I no likey mornings.

I love that quote!!!!!

Dianne said...

is it OK to like them both?
sunrise seems poignant to me, another chance

sunset makes me feel peaceful

Anita said...

The sun rising is the start of a new day...I'll choose sunrise. :)

TSannie said...

Sunrise...no sunset...no sunrise. I just LOVE them both. Is that a sunset you took a photo of? It's beautiful and that little girl is beyond adorable.

Norah said...

I'm bad a decisions. I say both are equally perfect and beautiful...and unique.

T.J. said...

Oh I couldn't possibly decide, but I loved looking at the choices ;)

Great hope quote, too! I just saw you are from Perkasie. I grew up in the Lehigh Valley- what a small bloggy world! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Robin said...

Definitely sunsets. I am not a morning person, and I am definitely a summer person, and summer has some gorgeous sunsets.

Love the quote! :)

karen@fitnessjourney said...

I like sunrise the best. Every day is a new adventure and the sunrise lets me know that it's only just beginning!

She Writes said...

I could never choose between the two.

Jen said...

Nice picture! Sunset because I think the colors are more vivid here in So. Cal. Of course, I don't like rising early enough to see the sunrise, so that probably influences my perference!

Willa said...

Nice quote.So true,HOPE is always there to cheer us up.

alita said...

I don't know if I love sunsets or sunrises more, but this picture captures why I have LOVE for them.

Oh and the quote... one of my faves!

Megryansmom said...

That's a tough one, but I think sunsets are just a little more romantic to me.

tara said...

i'm a sunrise girl. sunsets are great too but i love the feeling i get when i bother to pull myself up out of bed and make a trek to somewhere special to see the first bursts of color light the sky as if on fire.

beautiful shot, as always.

Rana said...

I like sunset. Watching it go down and being able to relax at the end of a long day.

Justine said...

I'd definitely have to say sunset, because I hate mornings. But, there's something so magical about a sunrise, isn't there? Shoot, now I wish I was a morning person.

Justine :o )

Dot O said...

I love both but really only get to witness the sunset... Sunrises haven't seemed to fit into my daily routine - one day though..

I will go visit Drew - now!

Mighty M said...

I HOPE you have a wonderful day.

I love watching the sunrise. Preferably on a beach in Hawaii. :)

Upstatemomof3 said...

I have to go with sunset. For as beautiful as sunrise may be I never want to be awake to see it. I am SO NOT a morning person!!

CJ said...

What a gorgeous picture! I also think I will have to go with sunset, because if Im awake to SEE the sunrise (unless its in picture format)...its not going to be pretty :) Nice capture..!

4 Lettre Words said...

With photography I like sunset...but with life I prefer sunrise!!

Mental P Mama said...

I love both...but probably sunsets a little bit more;)

blueviolet said...

I haven't seen many sunrises but maybe I'll try to make that a goal! I can't choose!

Adeena said...

I have to say sunsets. ;) But that's because I'm not a morning person. And because I live near Lake Huron, and some of the most spectacular sunsets happen as the sun goes down 'behind' the lake.

Love your picture.

Trudy said...

Great headers for sure!

Sunset is my favorite but I've always been more of an evening gal!

Karen Deborah said...

That is easy! Sunset! BECAUSE I haate being up out of bed and God forbid awake at the butt crack of dawn!

lacyann said...

Hmm... I'm from the west coast and am always down for a good beach sunset, but sunrises are always so rewarding. Such a hard decision!

Elaine A. said...

Wow that's gorgeous. Love the quote too...

Dcan said...

I love sky photos - great hopeful photo! I try not to be awake for sunrises, but I know they can be beautiful. Guess I'm more of a sunset person.

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Thats a tough one. I think sunrise. Always hope for new beginnings.
Great post Becky.
<><

Caroline (Frogmum) said...

I def' LOVE sunrise, but I am a late to bed, late to riser, so I seldom see it ~ unless I'm just going to bed, as is sometimes the case in the summer months!! :D I love Sunset too, but there is something very special about the hope of each new day that somehow sunrise screams at you, coupled with the morning chorus of birdsong, I don't think it can be beaten!

beausarmywife4life said...

Thanks for the comment. Your pic is just gorgeous!!

Dawn said...

what a lovely sky. very hopeful! and a great way to show it. i'd take either sunset or sunrise. each beautiful in its own way :)

jaime said...

The colors in that picture are amazing. And I think I'm more of a fan of sunrises.
