There Is Something About Morning...


 sometimes days just don't do what we want them to,
but there's something about morning that makes hope and dream feel new!



Psalm 107:31
Let them give thanks to the LORD for His loving devotion 
and His wonders to the sons of men.

There is something about morning that makes Time feel fresh and new
Sparkling scarf of stars adorning every frond and blade with dew
Darkling hope reborn, that seemed so worn and full of holes last eve
There is something about morning that makes witnesses believe
There is purpose in the pursuit of love’s higher beck and call
In the mercy that metes moments after stumble-slip-and-fall
In the Hand that gives though oft we take without even a nod
There is something about morning that draws mankind close to God
As our numbered days are dwindling, where the flicker of Has Been
Kindles substance of things hoped for; evidence of things not seen  
Where faith's wings would fear the heights that it must rise to now and then
But there’s something about morning that makes us fly once again
