Fresh Start

It’s the songs of birds in the large tree outside that stir me awake in this early hour and beckon me out of bed. The sun just beginning its ascent brings promise of a fresh start; a chance to begin again. It will later direct our paths as it gives light to the darkness and will thaw the thin layer of frost blanketing the earth.

As the coffee begins to brew, I peer through the kitchen widow. The greenhouse sparkles with a million crystals of ice shimmering in the slowly rising sun. Tucked inside all my delicate plants are happy and content; saved from the damaging frost by the shelter literally built by love.

It is the beginning of a new day.

Seize the opportunity to drink in all that is wonderful and good, and against all that may stand in your way, make this an incredible week.

    Beautiful! Your writing this morning shows me to cut through the pain or even the mundane that litters my life and see the wonder and magic and beauty all around me. I will need reminders, but this morning you showed me how often I focus on the difficult and miss the glory all around me. Such a lovely start to a new morning, a new week, a fresh moment.

    What a beautiful post! Sometimes life is so busy or difficult that we neglect to see the beauty and the blessings that surround us. Wishing you a beautiful day and a glorious week ahead!
