Mornings

I like mornings.

Because they are fresh.

Because they are quiet & still.

Because they are clean & bright.

Because there are beautiful songs from the birds.

Because the air is a little chilly.

Because everyone else is still asleep.

Because my day is still a surprise.

Because the sunlight makes the grass sparkle.

Because new flowers have bloomed.

Because my house smells like coffee.

Because I feel God so near.

I like mornings because they remind me how lucky I am to be alive!
