Every day I find myself waking up very early.
At first this was quite troublesome for me.
However, now I greatly enjoy this practice.
My morning begins in silence.
A time for keeping silent
and a time for speaking.
I sit in silence (sipping on a hot cup of coffee these cold mornings)
Then, I hear the birds begin to greet the morning.
Every morning a new song begins the day.
Sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing his praise from the ends of the earth!
Sing to the Lord a new song
because he has done wonderful things!
The silence brings stillness to my soul,
and thankfulness overcomes me when I hear the birds’ song.
Let us take time every day and welcome the silence and the new song.
