When I wake up in the morning, I roll over and the first thing I see from my window is a gorgeous mass of poppies
And I thank God for beautiful flowers.
I get up and put the coffee beans in the grinder and inhale
And thank God for wonderful smells.
I pour hazelnut creamer into my English china cup and fill it with fresh coffee
And I thank God for delicious tastes.
I sit down at the computer and open the word of God
And I thank Him for life-giving words.
Then I exercise, feeling the muscles unkink and the pain recede
And I thank Him for healing movement.
I listen to music
And I praise God while my spirit sings.
I pray for my husband, already at work, and wake my children for the day
And I thank my precious Abba for a loving family.
disclaimer: I wrote this a couple of weeks ago when the poppies were in full bloom, but I couldn’t get my photos to upload, and I sort of forgot about it.
They are down to only a couple of blooms now.
