The Light of the Morning {Thankful Thursdays}

I am blessed to be living where we do. We have the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. No matter how many times I look out the windows in either direction to see the beauty God created there is always something different about the view in the sky. Each one is unique with many differences from the one before it.

The Light of the Morning comes just before sunrise. With it, comes hope for a fresh new day. How we live today is up to us, choose wisely how you will live it. Thankful Thursdays Linkup l frogslilypad.net


Just a quick drive north in the still of the night, we are able to see more than the eye can behold, when we trek out to watch the Milky Way come into focus along with the Big and Little Dipper. The millions of twinkling stars and seeing an occasional shooting star while hoping to catch it on camera and facing the bitter temperatures to catch the northern lights. But there is something special about The Light of the Morning that comes just before the sunrise.

Seeing The Light of the Morning


Seeing all the beauty God created in the sky is amazing. Watching every morning as the planets line-up is thrilling to this astronomy lover. But there is something about The Light of the Morning when it floods the earth. I’m not a morning person, but having the opportunity to watch the light as it comes over the horizon is special. I can’t imagine missing out on one of the most beautiful displays created by God.

With each morning comes a new day with a fresh start. No matter how dark our night has been when the light of the morning begins to shine, we know there is a new day ahead and how we choose to live it is up to us. Yes, there are going to be uncontrollable things to happen, but how we accept those things is what matters. Will we keep our faith in the Lord, or will we lose our faith in Him? I can only pray I keep my faith in Him and not lose out because of Satan.

Then came the morning, night turned into day;
The stone was rolled away, hope rose with the dawn.
Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come.

  1. Hi Lori, the pictures you shared are adorable!
    God is good no matter how dark the night is the morning breaks through the darkness and the light shines through.
    The enemy can't hold us back because God's light shines even when it seems the darkness won't go away.
    Lovely thoughts, friend.
    God Bless

  9. Lori, I am a morning person I love getting up and praying and reading my Bible while the house is still quite. Then I go out on the back porch and watch the sun come up, so peaceful and beautiful even here in Auburn!

  10. Lori, It sounds absolutely gorgeous there! I have never traveled in that area. Someday, though! One of my favorite verses is Psalm 30:5 -"There may be pain in the night, but joy comes in the morning." There is always a new fresh start on the other side of darkness!
    Blessings and smiles,
    Lori

  14. I hope you get to visit one day. It is more beautiful in western Montana, but there is definitely something about the openness we have here on this side of the state. Psalm 30:5 is one of my favorites also. It is a beautiful reminder of the freshness of the new day.

  24. Nothing like a gorgeous sunrise or sunset. I could gaze forever at them. Especially over the ocean. Thanks for sharing this over at the #HeartforOthers Link up.

  25. Hi Lori! I'm visiting from the #heartforothers link up and thank you for visiting my blog as well. I love Montana and have family there - there is a reason it's called Big Sky Country! Beautiful! We often hang on God's "mercies new every morning" (Lam 3:22-23) but I like to go further than that because our God is bigger than that. His mercy is new every moment ... we need not wait until morning! Thanks for a great post!

  26. I love that, Felecia, I'm thankful for those new mercies every moment. Yes, there is a very beautiful reason why Montana is called Big Sky Country. Thank you for visiting.
