It was warm enough to take my coffee out on the deck early this morning. I sat quietly and thanked the Lord for his goodness.
This is the first morning I’ve had a chance to sit in my own garden after a trip to the cancer center for a six month check-up.
Good news! No evidence of new tumours.
It’s a new day and I am deeply grateful.
This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation, praise every morning;
God’s recreation of the new day!
(from Morning Has Broken by Eleanor Farjeon)
