Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

Morning’s Quiet

9 Comments

It’s the dead of winter here in wild and wonderful West Virgina
and while I appreciate the Winter wonderland,  I must confess
my Alabama roots beckon me.
I’m still a flatlander at heart, especially this time of year.

I still love the view from
my kitchen table as snowflakes
fall brightening the landscape
and backdrop of the mountains.

Cardinals, doves, and snow buntings
are a welcomed delight as my husband
and I feast on the beauty God paints for us.

Yet I long for warmer temps and flat lands this time of the year.

This morning I came across an old poem reminding me
how blessed I am…
no matter where I live or whatever season I find myself in.

The quiet of the morning spent with my bible and journal
takes me to a place that fills the deeper longing of my soul.
The psalmist said it best.

As the deer pants for the waterbrooks, so my soul pants for You, O God.
Psalm 42:1

After the dew of morning’s quiet
Comes fresh showers of heaven’s rain.
Nothing can stop the cool refreshing
My Father sends once again.

All I need for life He gives me
As I humbly come and rest.
Rest in the stillness of the morning;
There I find my Father’s best.

Child of my heart lean hard against me,
All day long … into the night.
For the one who rests in Jesus,
Knows the joy of Heaven’s Light.

“Only believe” my Savior tells me.
“Believe in me and trust and rest;
For the one who learns to trust me
Will receive the Father’s best”.

Then Jesus said, “Come to me … and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28a NLT

    • You know I thought about going back and changing the title from best to rest…because that’s where He has me right now. Resting in His promises and Presence. Thanks for your words of encouragement, Cindy.
      And yes, the grandbaby and parents landed safely last night and are home resting up with their children Hanna and Caleb. We plan to see them next week before we leave for Israel. Hugs!
