There is a stillness as I look out my window. The sound of a gentle rain on the windows breaks the early morning peace.
The neighborhood dogs are quiet, birds are silent, squirrels are still and the daily sound of automobiles rushing here and there, are motionless, creating a unique beauty of a city at rest.
The mountains surrounding our little valley are covered with a mist that seems to settle on everything with tenderness.
As I sip my morning tea I look out the window as day light breaks and noticed colorful leaves still on the trees that glistened in the morning mist. Bare trees are silhouetted against a gray sky, the streetlights illuminating the droplets of rain on outstretched branches like sparkles of diamonds. The weathered wood fence and an old garage are but shadows in the misty air.
Our Creator has painted a beautiful masterpiece this morning.
Teaching us to be still in His presence.
To delight in this moment.
To prepare for the Light of the World – Jesus Christ
