Today’s Message is: “Sunrise Day!” Why Not?


“Why do successful leaders always wake up before sunrise? Because they want to get a head start on everyone else and be successful. They wake up earlier than most and that gives them the extra time they need to map out their day and objectives. It’s no big secret —get up and get going, leaders!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

I have to admit thar since I retired from my civilian job I haven't seen many sunrises. During my military career we always launched a 3 ship FB-111 flight at 0645 so I've seen more than a fair share of sunrises. The younger leaders can enjoy them!

Good morning, Col Burroughs and all my brothers and sisters here on VFV.


I am generally not a morning person. All the years of shiift work was spent mostly at night and then going to bed in the morning, often times going to bed before sunrise. I do tend to rise before sunrise these days, however. There is something of a refreshing feeling for me now, seeing the dawn of a new day, that brings the hope of a new day filled with hope and joy. It gives me time to be thankful and to praise my Lord and Savior, without interruption. May you have blessed new day and always.
