Sept. 30, 2010

a little light

my day starts early
i am usually up at 5:30 am
while it is still dark
but within a half hour the light is dawning
it is the sweetest time of my day

i watch the light kiss the clouds
i watch the birds come to feed
i listen to the sound of the morning with joy
and 
i am in awe of the beauty that behold my eyes
i try to grab my camera when i get up
for moments such as this

the door on our bedroom is warped so it makes quite a racket
upon opening and closing so i hate to go back in the bedroom
for my camera
as i don't want to wake up bob
(sleep is precious)

thankfully i had grabbed it before leaving the room
i was drawn to the deck by the light in that one cloud
it wasn't til i was standing there that i saw the cruise ship 
coming in bathed in early morning light


light in the clouds
light shining 
through the dark cloud
always hope
always
always
it stills my soul
knowing He is there
no matter what is all around us there is always light shining

as i write this i am listening to kari jobe
and i want to share the lyrics to a song 
that is so fitting

BE STILL

He is here for the broken and life to the one who is undone
He is peace to the wounded and hope for the helpless one
He is here, He is here

Be still my soul, be still
Be still my soul, be still
Wait patiently upon the Lord
Be still my soul, be still

When the waves rise against me and the wind tries to draw me away
I will stand on the mountain, safe in Your arms I will sing I will sing

Be still my soul, be still
Be still my soul, be still
Wait patiently upon the Lord
Be still my soul, be still

Be still I know He is God
He is here, He is here
Be still I know He is God
He is here, He is here

no matter what you are facing
today 
may there be enough light
for you to be still
and know 
that 
He
is 
God
