New Each Morning

Morning, dawn in particular, is my favorite part of the day. Yesterday at about 6:50 am, as I pulled out of my apartment complex to drive to work, I was getting excited for the new day and what uplifting moment I could write about. I didn't know God would reveal it to me so early, but, wow. I turned the bend in the road and there was this beautiful rainbow surrounded by the bright pink clouds of the sunrise. Beauty enfolded in beauty.

The sight reminded me of the Bible verse(s) that say God's mercies are new each morning. Well, amen! That moment I really wished I would never miss one sunrise for the rest of my life. Those moments could be my uplifting moments for each day...but I get the feeling my boss would consider that cheating on my Positive Psychology Homework. Darn. Then again, I think I should get extra credit on this one because it concerns the soul and the psyche. Teacher's pet habits - I guess they die hard.


  1. I can't believe you leave for work at 6:50am. Actually, I totally can believe it, because you're always such an early bird! I'm envious of your ability to wake up and be in a good mood. Maybe I should try this whole uplifting moments thing . . . it would certainly help my mood in the morning!

  2. All this time I have been keeping my blog and you didn't tell me about yours? What the heck, Ariel?!?!?! I want to know about what's going on in your life too, this is so exciting! Seriously, now that Ben has a blog, and Bess has a blog, and you hvae a blog, and I have a blog, I am reading tons, I am keeping up in my friends lives, I am thinking about great questions, and I am living in Europe. Keep posting so I have stuff to read. Do some book reviews of stuff you are reading or just things you are thinking about that might be thought provoking. I guarantee you I will comment on it. Love you and miss you tons.
