What a Beautiful Morning!

I woke up earlier than normal this morning because Charlie is scheduled for his exam today.  Please pray for him that he passes.  He's very nervous.  I know he'll do fine but tests make him anxious.  He'd rather do the physical job and let someone test him on that rather than have to take a written test.

Since I woke up earlier I had the opportunity to watch the sunrise.  This is no where near as early as I used to wake up for my 'job'.  I was at work by 6:30 everyday! HA I didn't get to see the sunrise then either because I was already in the office with no windows.  but I digress...  My subject this morning was the sunrise.  Isn't it beautiful?  I was in the kitchen making my morning coffee and heard the birds chirping.  It seemed like they were calling me.  I went out the front door and immediately ran back in to grab my phone so I could take a picture.  It was beautiful!!  We had a ferocious thunderstorm last night and it looked like the new buds on the tress would literally be pulled from the trees.  But this morning the trees are just covered with little droplets of water.  You can't tell from the pictures but there was also a light fog this morning but it wasn't a scary fog, it was more like a stage curtain.  Almost like the Lord was raising the curtain so we could start this beautiful day!

"There are so many blessings that you have given me.  Things I take for granted everyday.  The beauty of creation and the promise of salvation, Lord help me to remember when I pray.  Thank you for the things that I never thank you for, for giving everything I need and I still I ask for more. It's not that I'm ungrateful, I'm just forgetful Lord, so I thank you for the things that I've never thanked you for.  When my way grows weary and rest is hard to find, and sometimes I can't see my way through.  And when it seems that I am blinded that's when I need to be reminded that the strength I thought was mine it came from you!"
