Sunlight filters in through the blinds; the breeze is cool and refreshing through the slightly open bedroom window.
Shifting from dreamy sleep to wakefulness; content and peace filled. Thank you Lord for waking me up – I’m coming!
Cozy cat stirs and stretches; stomping on body parts still under the covers. Time to get up. He knows the routine well.
Scent of brewing coffee brings homey memories to mind; rich and earthy, there is safety in predictability.
Dogs wait politely, then bound outdoors enjoying freedom after a long, snug night. Noses to the ground on high alert; sniffing out the offending evening invaders; dew drops spot their muzzles; glinting as the sun peeks through tree tops.
Sounds of the morning!
Wind chimes sing softly and gently as the breeze tosses itself about; birds up since dawn cling to the feeders, calling and scolding and jostling for position. Bright reds and yellows, muted greys and black.
The gentle light of early morning gives way to something stronger; fortifying, brighter, life giving.
Coffee and the Bible sit on the pine table; steam swirls and pages flutter; beckoning and calling.
My heart stirs. There are mysteries to unravel here; richness to take in and understanding waiting to be sought and known. Revelation, peace and contentment are what I seek; warmth, depth and life.
Who knows what will come as the day unfolds? Joy? Laughter? Tears? Fear? For now, I sit at my Daddy’s feet, listening to Him speak with all my senses; sipping the warm richness of my coffee. It’s just a morning; but it is my joy.
