Are you a morning person, a night owl or somewhere in between? I would like to be a morning person but usually end up more like a night owl.

The following poem describes some of what I’ve felt when I have gotten up early. It really is not a typical day for me but more like an invitation.

The Quiet Early Morning
In the quiet of the morning
I will rise to greet the sun.
The birds will start their singing
joining slowly one by one.
This early hour is magical,
a point ‘tween shadow and light.
It feels somewhat mystical
filling my soul with delight.
As it climbs higher in the sky
the sun dispels the darkness.
Flowers waken where they lie
in beds of dewy freshness.
A sense of peace surrounds me here
at the birth of this new day.
From my eye a thankful tear
escapes while I pause to pray.
I want to face the day with a sense of wonder and anticipation.
I want to experience the sunrise, to hear the wood thrush and dove as they greet the day.

Tomorrow morning, I just might grab a blanket and some coffee and head out to the porch swing. There I will wait and watch as the world begins to come alive.
The invitation is open to all. Won’t you join me and see what treasures await?

After having much of her time on a schedule, Brenda decided to take a walk without having any kind of agenda. Join her as she takes time to reflect on God’s creation reminding her of His love. She reflects on the importance of God’s word in our lives. If you need time to slow down and be refreshed, you won’t want to miss her beautiful photos and reflections.
