a glimpse of the morning

There is sometimes a sacredness that comes in the morning.  The warm shower inside while the snow and wind blow on the pine tree outside.

Janneke's hand reaches out to the warm water and moves back and forth, in and out of the spray.

Joy comes in the morning - and in a fuzzy towel.

Makes me think of the song my mom would sometimes sing:

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
His mercies never come to an end.
They are new every morning, new every morning,
Great is your faithfulness, O Lord, great is your faithfulness.

And in this morning, big sister Sophia alternates between big hugs to Rachel and Janneke (she often insists on giving three hugs to each kid before doing her chores) and cartwheels to R and J's newest favourite cd, Kids World Party by Putumayo Kids.

Music really does speak to the soul, stirring -convincing- the spirit to move forward.

Peace to your home,
