Of Dressing Rooms and Newborn Bloom...

Another day is waking
Breaking o’er street and hill
From heaven’s well where none can tell
What waits its span to fill

The wick of dawn is kindled
And by light of new day
Onward we go, we do not know
Its shrouded come-what-may

The morning is upon us
Mercy’s ignited flare
Moves mystery to history
Beneath God’s faithful care

Another day is granted
For man’s worship or boast
It’s newborn bloom time’s dressing room
Toward what matters most

 Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, 
and let not the mighty man boast of his might, 
let not a rich man boast of his riches; 
but let him who boasts boast of this, 
that he understands and knows Me, 
that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, 
justice and righteousness on earth; 
for I delight in these things," 
declares the LORD.

Jer. 9:23-24
