Good Morning.............


Genesis 1
And there was evening, and there was morning—

After every day of creation, God ended the great feat with these simple words.........and there was evening, and there was morning (the first day, the second day, the third day, etc.)

I guess as I sit here in the darkness of the early morning, hearing the birds begin to chirp outside and smelling the fresh-brewed coffee sitting near me, I can't help but feel humbled that no matter what I may accomplish on any given day or what I don't get finished on my to-do list for another day.........

One thing never changes...........

There is evening and there is morning...............

Another chance to rest and another chance to "try again"..............

Really, nothing is more consistent than God's creation and He acknowledged the reliable pattern daily as He worked His way through the first week of the beginning of "human" time.................

So, I guess for this morning as I reflect on such a busy season of my life and as I look ahead at what appears to be an equally-busy summer, I want to pause...........

Long enough to soak up the chirping of the birds and to even possibly catch a glimpse of the sun as it pops over the horizon out my living room window....Tim is so good to notice the sunrise that I often miss..............

And in my pausing, I want to praise Him...........for His compassion which is truly "new every morning!"

LAMENTATIONS 3

22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."

Sipping my coffee, thankful for a never-changing, faithful, loving, compassionate Father,

How so true....What a world that is around us and how amazing it runs in sync. The trees know when to bud and when to lose its leaves, the flowers know when to bloom, the frogs know when to sing and the lightening bugs know when to flash it's light. I don't spend enough time sitting on my porch just absorbing life around me--God's creation. I think I am afraid if I sit and let myself go and soak in his glory, I would have to "deal" with so much that is inside me. That scares me. Tammy, you are always welcome to come and sit on my porch in the peace and glory of God's creation anytime!!

That is the second blog I read today on "being still" or something close to it...hmmmm...seems to be a recurring subject...
