Every morning that breaks
There are mercies anew
Every breath that I take
Is your faithfulness proved
And at the end of each day
When my labors are through
I will sing of Your mercies anew!
The sun came up fiercely today--it broke through the curtains and I was reminded just how much I have to be thankful for.
This morning we drove to school without music or distracted chatter about Legos and the Backyardigans. We had real conversations about baby calves that we passed in the field and the gorgeous Queen Anne's Lace that grows wild by the road. We laughed and when Griffin gave his brother a big kiss before he headed out the van door, I couldn't help praising God in my heart for mornings like this. For mercies anew.
This week I'm thankful for so many things.
~For more blessings in our lives in the form of new babies born into our family.
~For cool mornings and soggy dew.
~For a bountiful garden in the backyard.
~For an amazing husband and daddy who cares for us.
~For a 2 year-old who hysterically gains independence each day.
~For my big kids who are helpful and seeking and growing.
But most of all for this. A reminder that even when it is foggy and rainy and the sun isn't shining, God and his mercy is constant!
And Your mercies, they will never end
For ten thousand years they’ll remain
And when this world’s beauty has passed away
Your mercies will be unchanged
