The fourth of Lisa Eisenhardt's Advent mosaics. Her notes follow:
Since I started this project I have been waking up at 5:30am and unable to go back to sleep. Every single day. And just this morning I realized how much I’ve been battling it and not even paying attention. Could it be that God has called me to wake up in the dark so I can watch the sunrise? As I watch the sun come up, and my cherished darkness fades away, I look at today with a new filter, just like the stained glass against sunlight.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger
who announces the good news, “All is well.”
He brings the good news,
and tells Zion that its Elohim rules as king.
