Here’s to everything our Father brings this morning.
Awakened by music from a songbird outside (and my phone alarm set to full volume), I’m halfway into a fine cup of coffee, and just finished my prescribed reading for today. I’d like to share this one:
Surprise us with love at daybreak;
then we’ll skip and dance all the day long.
Make up for the bad times with some good times;
we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime.
Let your servants see what you’re best at—
the ways you rule and bless your children.
And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us,
confirming the work that we do.
Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!
