Morning Light

It sit at the bottom of this day and look up.

It feels hard.

I read difficult emails, engage painful places in my own story, anticipate hard conversations.

Unknown.

Opening to joy lets sorrow in, also.

Grief.

Sunday morning I took a walk, earbuds in, playlist on shuffle.

Josh Garrels Morning Light began to play.

Randomly.

It’s gonna be alright
Turn around and let back in the light
And joy will come
Like a birdie in the morning sun
And all will be made well
Once again

Josh Garrels, Morning Light

I turned around to this view.

It is what I hold as I look up today.

I choose to turn towards the light.

Grateful for the reminder of the joy to come.

    Julie – I love this!! A quote I find helpful and hopeful is from JFK, ““We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light a candle that can guide us through the darkness to a safe and sure future. For the world is changing. The old era is ending. The old ways will not do.”
