What a contrast from a few weeks earlier when early morning thoughts included to do lists and strategies for problems. I remembered to give thanks once I fully awakened.
Ah, how much more preferable to spill out gratitude first and early. Whether day or night - gratitude gives way to love, light, and life.
Spending time recuperating opens opportunities for transforming perceptions - an unexpected gift during these quiet August days and nights.
How exquisite your love, O God!...You're a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light. Psalm 36:7,9 (The Message)Along with Ann's Gratitude Community, I am counting gifts from Love, Light, and Life.
