First Light

First Light
First Light

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

(from 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman)

I’m not a morning person. In times when I don’t need to conform to other people’s hours I tend to go to bed later every evening, which means I tend to be less than sparkly at dawn. But I miss a lot of good light. My friend reminded me of this yesterday when she urged me to get up and get going with her on a photo shoot. I grabbed my coffee and stumbled out the door when her vehicle pulled up and we headed out. What a beautiful morning! Sometimes we need a little encouragement, a little vicarious optimism, a little holy provocation. Thank you, Denise. You are a blessing to me.
