I got out of my warm bed this morning, and padded out to the living room. I turned up the heat, grabbed a blanket and intended to snuggle up on the couch until Kamryn arrived.
The view out my windows caught my attention instead.
It's amazing how it can change in just a few moments. As I write it's already faded to where if I'd just gotten up, it wouldn't have caught my eye. Psalm 8
O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 4 What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[b] And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, 7 All sheep and oxen— Even the beasts of the field, 8 The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
I'm thankful to have woken up earlier than I normally do. Thankful to have caught the beauty of this winter morning sunrise. Thankful to know the ONE who created it all and holds it in His hands.
