A Dew Spangled Morning

By 10:00:00 , , , ,

Dew droplets covered the grass this morning, leaves, flowers and spider webs glistened in the sun. I couldn't resist the temptation. As I walked over the lawn I left a trail of bright green amongst shimmering silver. I knocked the dew from the grass as I brushed past. 

Looking up into the sky I could see the clouds shining white; looking like God raked them into strange patterns just for the enjoyment of those willing to look. 

Around the boarder of each blade tiny water drops gleamed. Reflecting back light and upside down images of the surrounding grass.

On every leaf, tiny drops of water sat shining like silver in the sun. Leaves glowed as the golden sun shone through them. Spiderwebs shimmered and shook as I walked past.

Many types of fungus pushed their way up through the dirt and burst out into the beautiful day. The most delicate things, some of them, others large and covered in frills which also had dew on them.

 Just be willing to look and you will see, all of creation's God given glory. 

 We may live in a fallen world where there is much evil, but there is also much good. Much good and beauty. God has given us creation to enjoy, it is one of the ways he reveals himself to us. Morning is a gift from God. Each breath we breathe is from him, he alone sustains us.

Don’t just drag out of bed every morning. Get alive and awaken your mind and body for the gift of a brand new day gift wrapped with sun light and air. Not just another ordinary day, it is the day of new opportunities.

~Phoebe Kites

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

~Marcus Aurelius (and don't ask me who he is as I have no idea)
