singing the sun to rise

…fresh soundings of life, for new showings of light.’

I wake to the darkness of pre-dawn. This is the time when the quiet calm of night meets the whispers of a new day. Creation stirs us to awareness in these moments.

Our nature is to seek the sounds of life and the sight of light. The first bird sings to announce day’s arrival. Soon we all begin to rustle our wings preparing for that first flight.

Open your eyes with gratitude – the light of dawn unfolds to welcome this new day.

Fields of Light

Awake, my dear,
Be kind to your sleeping heart,
Take it out into the vast
fields of Light,
And let it breathe.

The colors of dawn



Each moment of the day is bathed in colors of its time. It is easy to be so busy that there is no time to notice, no time to join natures subtle transitions that make up a day.  

May we awaken to the gentle light of this dawn. May we pay attention to the subtle changes in the day’s color- a blessing of creation. 

The Road


It is your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

Morning prayer

 


Blessed are those who know their need for theirs is the grace of heaven.

May the angels of light glisten for us this day.
May the sparks of God’s beauty
dance in the eyes of those we love.
May the universe be on fire with Presence for us this day.
May the sun’s rising grace us with gratitude

Let earth’s greenest shine and it’s waters breathe with Spirit.
Let heaven’s winds stir with the soil of our soul and fresh awakenings rise within us.

May the mighty angels of light
glisten in all things this day
May they summon us to reverence,
may they call us to life.
