826. With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

We live between the act of awakening
and the act of surrender.
Each morning, we awaken to the light
and the invitation to a new day 
in the world of time.
Each night, we surrender to the dark
to be taken to play in the world
of dreams where time is no more.
~John O’Donohue

Every morning is a chance to forget
the pains of yesterday and to see
the changes a brand new day brings –
chances to dance and laugh again,
chances to make up for wrong things done.
Most of all, it’s God’s reminder
that He’s sending another blessing –
another chance at this thing called “LIFE.”
~Edited lines by Justice Cabral

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness, Lord. ~Lamentations 3:22-23  ✝

Oh Lord, lover of my soul, thank you for coming to dance with we again…

  1. truly lovely–as I read this through the sweat dripping down my face—we had a cold front come through—it’s only 95 verses whatever it was before the front—and the humidity is supposedly lower—maybe down from 80% to 78% 🙂

    • Hey, I’ll take any kind of cold front I can get. We have been over a hundred ever since we got back. I pray we both get some rain and cooler temps soon. This is just awful! Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  2. Reblogged this on Loving Me, Too and commented:
    Loving me and loving you is offering these gifts from Natalie, Offerings of a new flower and a new song to sing. She reminds me that every day brings something new to see and learn, if we just open our eyes and open our hearts.
