A MORNING PRAYER
Thank You for New Beginnings!
Thank you for your love that endures forever.
Thank you for making me clean.
May I hear your voice throughout the day and say,
"Yes, Lord, to your will and your way."
As I look to the sky,
I see the beauty of the sun reflecting on the clouds.
A New Day!
Thank You!
This prayer was written at dawn. . the most beautiful time of the day!

Mary...what a beautiful picture...I love sunrises. One with a cup of coffee can't be beat. I'm always amazed how He repaints them every time and they never grow old. I have pretty sunsets looking out my front window...we sit on top of the hill in the neighborhood so we look out over the trees and get beautiful glimpses.
Hope this finds all well.

When I see a sunrise, I always think of the scipture, Psalms 30:5....................weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning..

Beautiful prayer Mary. That is the most gorgeous photo. Only a great Creator could create such a thing.

I have seen some of the most gorgeous sunrises with purple in it but never had my camera at work. Since we rebuilt our college campus, I no longer face the direction of the sun rise. :-(

A beautiful morning prayer Mary and a well chosen sun graphic...I so enjoyed your header with candles that Keep the Light Shining! May the Lord fill and bless you and your week in Him!

There's nothing like a sunrise to birth the possibility of God's new in my own heart. Even now, I anticipate a Monday new and the unlimited ways that God is going to show up in my life this week.

Blessings, sweet Mary.

Yes, it is nice to have a new day!I sometimes feel overwhelmed at the beginning of a day--I am constantly having to focus on His presence at the start of a day!
