The sound of the birds chirping in the trees and the sight of the sun bursting through the backdrop of the homes made me smile from my seat. I think to myself, “Could there be any better way to start my day?”
As I sat on my front porch at dawn, smelling early morning scents of wet grass, roasted coffee and blooming rose bushes, I decided, "no," this is the best way to enter into my day.
Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad. Gratitude for what was and what will be is the theme of my moment and the fuel that keeps me going.
