Prelude to the Awakening


The morning dissolved in errands that started at sun-up, 

then to a batch of bread...

a pan of granola bars

(recipe note: substitute dried cranberries with  any dried fruit, or chipits)
and if I don't have barley flakes I substitute quick oats and ground flax seed

...also, speaking from experience, the 20 min. cool time is optional if you want a sample sooner😀

and the whole morning had intermittent explosions/interruptions of harmonica music 
(my new toy thanks to some Christmas gift$$$ 
and an invitation to play for the kids at church on Sunday)!

Hello, heaven’s halo gleaming 
From a vault unplumbed, unfurled 
Like a fount of sequins streaming 
Through Want’s dreaming, scheming world 
Where progression and tradition 
Engage in clashing ideals 
Locking horns in opposition 
While time spins and thins its wheels 

Hello morning, Mercy’s token 
Fixed where every eye can see 
God has spoken, darkness broken 
By Ageless Authority 
He bestows gracious oblation 
Dawn throbs with love’s melody 
Pouring like an invitation 
Beckoning ‘come unto Me’ 

Hello, hope and heartache tango 
Teaching us the art of trust 
How to hold and how to let go 
In this dance of dust-to-dust 
Hello, happiness and hunger 
Learning love’s rhythm and rhyme 
Where no one is growing younger 
In the arms of Father Time 

Hello, season-circuit rider
On a phantom carousel
Of spring, summer, autumn, winter
Until we bid time farewell
Farewell, legacy-composer  
Farewell, fleeting breath-by-breath
Hello, morning drawing closer
The awakening in death

Listened to this song from my daughter's playlist
this morning... 

Psalm 136:1
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! 
For His mercy endures forever.

1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; 
His loving devotion endures forever.

Psalm 145:9
The LORD is good to all; 
His compassion rests on all He has made.
