You might think these pictures are taken at night but this is when hubby leaves for work in the morning. The "alarm" we wake up to is a local radio station, playing music. I hate to wake to a jarring, intrusive invasion of noise that certainly does make me start my day feeling quite alarmed! This must go back to my school days when I had a Baby Ben wind up alarm clock. The clock itself, I was proud to have. It made me feel grown-up, in a mysterious I'm-responsible-to-get-my-own-self-out-of-bed kind of way. It had glow in the dark tipped hands, so on dark, wintry mornings I could see clearly what time it was that I did not want to get up!
I've been rather laggardly about getting up with Dan lately, but I did this morning. It was the "old farmer's alarm". You know what that is, right? Before alarm clocks, you could drink a glass of water the night before. Depending on timing & amount,this would vary when you woke. Well, I very consciously set my alarm to go off a few minutes before the radio!!
Not only did I get to enjoy morning coffee ( mine had that yummy amaretto creamer!) & few kisses & hugs with Dan but I got to see this glorious snow shower in the glow offset by the dark. I LOVE a good snow, don't you?!!!
How about you? Did you open your eyes to some small token of His goodness? I bet you did! Was it the ability to savor your coffee, warm & darkly rich, beckoning you into your day? Was it being able to enjoy the companionable time with someone you love & know so well? Perhaps, it was the gift of being responsible for little one's well being. Or, like me , to see the beauty of snow showering into the darkness? That ability to appreciate, to enjoy, to see beauty, are a gift from Him, the Creator of All .
From Him, who has given us all things, richly, to enjoy!
May the Lord bless your day with eyes to see, ears to hear & a heart to appreciate all that we've been given!
