DAWN OF A NEW DAY
I have always been an early riser and nothing has changed in the years since I retired. I find the time just before sunrise to be very peaceful. A time in which I am fresh in mind, body and spirit. Stillness, complete stillness with no interference from other sources. It’s a time to communicate with God and listen to His reply. I took this photo on one such morning.
During my reading this morning I came across this little written piece that I felt fit in with what I was experiencing today.
To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face;
To greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains;
To approach my work with a clean mind;
To hold ever before me, even in doing of little things, the Ultimate Purpose toward which I am working;
To meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart;
To be gentle and kind, and courteous through all the hours;
To approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep, and the joy that comes from work well done –
This is how I desire to waste wisely my days.
