It happens every couple months, you know those mornings—where time almost stands still—and your eyes and heart are a little more open to the gifts that are strewn about all around you. This morning was like that for me. It started out with a 4:45 wake up alarm, except I woke up at 4:43, like I always do when I set an alarm. I read from Psalm 90 (from the PrayNow app, which I ADORE) this little gem of a passage:
So teach us to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Return, O Lord! How long? Have pity on your servants!
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil.
Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands!
