Morning Time

Mornings are my favorite part of the day.  The quiet stillness when you can easily hear the birds chirping and the early morning sound of the cicadas.   In the house, the coffee maker brews my morning cup, the sound of the washing machine's gentle whirring, and the dryer humming as it works.  

What do my devotions have in store for me today?  What words of wisdom can I store in my heart?  I pray.  

Looking outside, the day is fresh.  The morning brings hope.  What will the day have in store?  An unknown author wrote, "Each day is a gift."  And, indeed it is.  What will I do with my gift today?


Morning glory is the best name,
it always refreshes me to see it.
-   Henry David Thoreau
