Encouraging Words For the Weekend
Why I Wake Early
"Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who make the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety -
best preacher that ever was, dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light -
good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness."
Rediscovering my love of poetry and meeting Mary Oliver (how did I not know?)
Praying your weekend is filled with the light of His love and the peace of His presence.
