Psalm 108:1-4: ‘I will wake up the dawn with music. I will give thanks for God’s love, which is more beautiful than the sunrise!’

As the fingers of dawn sunlight reach out through the trees,

I slowly stretch and peer out from the warmth of sleep.

Not really a morning person, I say to myself.

Taking time to connect with the day ahead,

may I encourage others to take the time they need today

– to stop, to see, to listen, to allow new hope to dawn.

And may this day’s dawning find me surprised by joy,

O Light of my life.
