I am NOT a morning person. At. All. I love to stay up into the wee hours of the morning, I love the silence of my home during those hours when I’m the only one awake. I love the solitude of knowing my family is safely tucked into their beds above me and I am free from being at the beck and call of their needs.
But, every great once in a while, I drag myself out of my warm, comfy bed, and force myself out of the house early enough to see the sunrise. Morning Grace was taken on one of those early mornings as I drove through the countryside. The sunrise was so breathtaking that I had to pull over, take a side trip up a driveway overlooking the valley, and pull out my camera.
The quote is the result of my conversation with God on that cold spring morning as He delighted me with His fresh painting in the sky. Just as He paints us a new sunrise each morning, so His grace is renewed with every dawn.
I printed this out on a stretched canvas and presented it to my daughter as a high school graduation gift. God promised me that one day, when she was at a low point in her life, she would look up at that canvas and remember that His mercies are new every morning and that He can be trusted with our lives because of His great love for us, and that she would turn toward Him and would be bathed in His love just as I was bathed in the light of that beautiful sunrise.
