Sharing The Sunrise {Beach Morning Walk}

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, 
    for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness. 
Lamentations 3:22-23

It's the day after my birthday and I am awake though the sun is not up yet. The sweet memory of a blessed birthday is lingering in the back of my mind. Sleep is still visiting my husband and daughter. I take the dog out and see two stars shining brightly out of the dusky morning. I am longing to walk in the cool of the morning, greeting the day, beholding the Creator's morning canvas. How I love Sunrise. I love it more than a beautiful sunset. It is the beautiful reminder of those new mercies promised every morning, by a faithful God, after the darkness of night. So consider this my Post-Birthday Gift to you. Be refreshed and blessed in the new mercies of the morning. Regardless of the time when you read this, embrace the idea, the belief, the gift of His grace, forgiveness, love and beauty. Right now. No hesitation. It's for you, my friend. With love.

Walk with me in the cool of His grace, in the gentleness and strength of His presence.
Let's go... 

There is none like this Artist,
my friend.
May He bless you today.

  1. Beau-ti-ful, Dawn! Dawn at dawn! And happy birthday a day late! Thanks for sharing God's handiwork!

  2. Happy Birthday Dawn! A very good friend of mine celebrated her birthday on the 24th as well. Special ladies! A girl after my own heart...what could be more beautiful than being on the beach at sunrise? The beach is my favourite place to go! It's a place where I go to relax and where all the worries seem to leave me as I bask in the fresh air and wonder of God's handiwork.
    No one could ever paint a picture as beautifully as our Creator! Thank you for sharing such bliss with us and I pray you have a wonderful new year before you filled with blessings from His hand...Sandi
