Sky Watch Friday - March 14th

I'm really not a morning person, but awakening to this wondrous view is definitely worth showing up early to the day. It reminds me of the beautiful hymn, "When Morning Gilds the Skies" and gives me reason to believe that all is well.

And a story comes to mind that I once read: One morning a woman waited at a bus stop where a group had gathered in the pouring rain. Amongst the miserable group was one man, smiling and cheerful despite his place in the cold, gray rain. When she asked him why he was so happy, he looked at her and said, "I ain't never lived this day before!"

So gilded or not... rain or no... go forth and greet the new day that awaits.
Because in the words of the wise, "Ain't none of us ever lived it before!"

Your "gives me reason to believe that all is well", combined with that magnificent image, had one of my favorites "It Is Well With My Soul" playing in my mind. Very nice ... thank you!

david mcmahon said...

Beautiful picture, beautiful words.

And isn;t it funny that you just left a comment on my blog asking how I always manage to co-ordinate decent pictures and words? !!!

You've just done exactly the same thing, Lori!

Misty Dawn said...

Oh WOW! You've convinced me that I need to get up earlier......well, almost - I really am not a morning person hehe. So, I think I'll stick with the sunsets. But, this photo is absolutely gorgeous!
