Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise,
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
~ From Awake My Soul (the last verse is the Doxology)
This is the best part of my summer, thus far. Each morning, nearly, I can slowly awake, heat a scone and make a cuppa coffee. Then, I can read my Grandmother's Bible and the daily entry in Streams in the Desert (thanks to Sandy sharing her love of the devotional, I now own one as well!). A little easy peasy knitting, I am addicted to Deb's waffle dishcloths right now, and then I am ready to face whatever the day offers.
How do you like to start your morning?
