Morning Praise: Unwrapping a Special Gift

I awoke this morning to a gift laid in front of me. There it sat neatly wrapped, addressed to me. Such a loving thought, someone taking time to give a gift just for me. As I peeled back the first piece of wrap, I felt the warm rays of morning light on my face. With the removal of the second piece of wrap, I heard the birds singing their morning song. With the next piece a light breeze began to blow. Piece after piece came off until there before me was the gift of a brand new day. I took a deep breath and praised God for the gift of this new day; the gift of another day of life.

Because of the Lordโ€™s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22

  1. We have to be very thankful for each new day. It is a huge gift fill lots of the expected and unexpected.

  2. Amen! This is beautiful! We are so lucky to have a Daddy who sends us love letters in the sunrise. He shared the soundtrack with the birds and the other animals. He is so beautiful!!
