There’s something about the morning that makes me feel at peace. The promise of a do-over, a fresh start, an opportunity to learn to breathe again. The dawning of a new day says peace to me. Thank you, Lord, for the soothing softness that comes with the morning, A soft whisper as the first ray of light slips up over the edge of the dark. It’s your voice.
I woke up this morning hoping to meet you in the sunrise but I was facing the wrong side of the sky. As I sat watching the morning begin to come alive, I noticed the birds all around me were singing and how the sunrise though behind me turned the clouds to a beautiful shade of orange in front of me. The ocean view off in the distance then drew me in. Suddenly the thought occurred to me that if I had no singing birds, ocean views, sunrises or sunsets you would still be here right beside me. You are all I need.
Thank you for helping me to get out of bed this morning. Thank you for your reassurance that I am special and needed in this world. Thank you for showing me you that have a plan for me. Thank you for showing me that I am your daughter and though You are Lord of all the universe you still care know every inch me. and You love me for who I am. Thank you for showing me I am beautiful. Thank you for always making sure I know that I am loved and that I am precious in your eyes. Though sometimes the day seems dark and dreary you always seem to shine you light into my life brightening it up, bringing peace and joy. Thank you for caring so much and thank you for being with me always.
In the hush of night sky a new day begins
Rays of sunlight spilling over the edge of darkness
Orange and yellow
Shining over blades of grass covered by dew glistening like glitter
Stillness, quietness, peace
Thank you for the moment when the sun comes up
Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

Thank you for the blessing of your never ending presence in my life. Thank you for always showing me you are here. Today it was in the beauty of the day, a song on the radio and the kindness of a friend. Thank you for always watching over me and gently reminding me where I belong.
With all my love, T
I feel my anxiousness begin to slip away as you show me your light slipping up over the edge of the dark with the dawning of the new day. I see you in the sun as it’s light begins filling the sky, your magnificent artwork painting the dark with your glory in color. As my eyes look upon this my fast heartbeat calms, because not only can I feel you, but I see you and I know you are near. I praise you and I thank you.
With all my love, T
Psalm 113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.
