The Dawning of a Song of Praise
Morning awakens, a new day begins
The SON shines with the hope of promises waiting to unfold.
As the sun kisses the tips of all it meets, its reflection scatters broadly in a bold display of beauty.
The reflection distributes love, widening the circle of its rays deeper, farther and higher.
All of nature joins in the song of praise…
Petals uncurl inviting us to soak in the richness of their colors,
Animals stretch and yawn,
The dew soaks in the light hungrily,
Birds chirp their song in response.
All of nature receives the light of day, accepting the gift of love, knowing it is theirs to share.
In the posture of receiving, all of nature opens itself to God’s glory.
The open stance invites God into its midst,
Pouring into all of mankind His grace, hope and love.
A carefully chosen gift rich in blessings from Our Creator.
[Tweet “Love pours forth in a song of praise, a defining path of welcoming footsteps calls us to grace.”]
The gift of love pours forth in a song of praise,
Playing in rich harmony as God’s creation is recognized.
The woven tapestry of intricate layers shines through and we bow down deep with gratefulness.
The gift of love dawns with the SON each day leaving fingerprints of mercy, forgiveness and redemption.
A defining path of welcoming footsteps calls us to grace
God’s gift, our path as His children, a beautiful love given through the sacrifice of His SON.
Day ending, thankfulness ever on our lips, a song of praise lifted as the last light fades.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to him a new song;
play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of the Lord is right and true;
he is faithful in all he does. Psalm 33:2-4
Sabbath blessings as we say goodbye to one week and wait expectantly for the new one to unfold!

Mary, this is beautiful! I love how you take us through the day beginning and ending with praise to our wonderful Creator God. Thank you for sharing this today. It’s perfect to start my day with praise to God. Blessings to you! xo
It is such a beautiful thing to always start our day with praise. I hope I remember to start my day with gratefulness on my lips. Praying your week is full of moments that stop you in awe because of our beautiful God. Blessings!
What beautiful photos, Mary!
Thank you Elizabeth! I love your offerings each Sunday at Women to Women ministries. Praying you have a blessed week.
My grateful heart joins yours this morning, friend. For He is so very worthy of our praise!
He is so worthy of our praise. Let us gratefully wake up each morning with praise on our lips and joy in our hearts. Love you friend!
May we also be in the “posture of receiving” all that God has for us on this Sabbath. I love that image, and it rings true in all of nature — as you described so beautifully!
Blessings, Mary. I do look forward to these Sunday morning visits.
You are so sweet to visit and stay awhile each Sunday. I do not let myself sit in a posture of receiving very often. I feel that I should take care of things myself. That works sometimes but more often than not we need God. Inviting Him into our lives and hearts will keep us on the right track. Praying you have a wonderful week.
