Morning is just a special time. It's quite for the most part (I'm usually the only one up). The beauty of the sunrise amazes me. Although the view out the back door is the same, the image is always different.
And morning reminds me of renewal. A fresh start.
There's so many ways to connect that thought to Christ.
Joy comes in the morning.
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
He makes all things new.
The earth is filled with His glory.
I like to think that God is a morning person too. Its full of beauty and peace and so is He.
I'm thankful for mornings, not just for my routine during this time, but for the new start. Waking to the realization that God has blessed me with a new day, and regardless of what the day brings, He is in it. He's ordained it.
Because I know, "This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it."
And I can rejoice each morning because of Him.
And there are so many things to rejoice right now. One of those things is the release of the book Even If Not by Kaitlyn Bouchillon. I met Kaitlyn at the Five Minute Friday Retreat in August. We roomed together and got to spend time chatting. You FMF friends know that there is something special about this community. And Kaitlin is one of the people who makes it so special.
You can order Even if Not today (right now, just click here). I think you'll be touched by her words.
And another thing to rejoice about....
In a matter of weeks, the second Spring Fever Giveaway will be going on here. I've got some amazing treats lined up! Like monograms? Makeup? Home decor? Jewelry? Yeah, me too. You don't want to miss the giveaway!
Happy Friday, Friends! Thanks for stopping by! Head over to Kate's to share in the Five Minute Friday fun.
