Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Morning.


It’s my favorite time of day. No morning is ever quite the same. This time of year, the mornings are so dark I can barely make out the trees out back in our yard. I am amazed by the pitch blackness.

There is a hush, a peace in the stillness. Only the sound of the heat coming up which has a comforting hum.

It’s the time of day in which there is a calm as the activity has not yet begun. My thoughts float to meeting with God on the pages of my Bible. Devotionals are read to focus my heart and mind on His sovereignty over the day, and over my life.

The word prompt immediately brought a song to mind I first heard as a teenager:

“Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to Thee.”

(written by Reginald Heber, 1826)

Morning, the special time of day when my prayers  are brought before Him.
Morning, the time of day that reminds me to keep looking up.

My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.” (Psalm 5:3, NKJV)
