Morning in summer …

Just after sunrise, the sun low in the sky.

Morning. Although I want to sleep late, I almost never do. On summer mornings, I drink my coffee and watch the early sun filter through my woods. Each day, the world is made anew.

The sun has risen higher in the sky. It’s about 7:30 in the morning.

Cat Stevens’ rendition of this traditional Christian hymn is beautiful, as is the presentation. I ask that you please leave your prejudices behind. It is a beautiful song of praise.

it is the bonus you get if you arise early. Late sleepers, make an occasional exception and see the world in a different light.

And now, coffee finished, the sun is high in the sky and the day has begun.

  3. Eleanor Farjeon? Good for her and applause for Cat Steven’s music.Each other’s catalyst to realms of wonder. I would have thought it was Gerard Manly Hopkins who wrote it. “I caught this morning Morning’s minion…”

  4. This song – and your photos – such a beautiful accolade to God and his marvelous creation. It’s a spiritual dessert on a Sunday night after church.

    • I thought so myself 🙂 That’s why I put it “on top” … I love that hymn. I got to use my three favorites: Morning Has Woken, Simple Gifts, and Amazing Grace. I think that’s why I blog. I get to do whatever pleases me. For me, this is real freedom!

  5. Reblogged this on catnipoflife and commented:
    Had not planned a post for catnip today but sometimes inspiration comes when least expected. Upon visiting Serendipity today, I found my catnip in the morning where you can observe life at its best, listen to life’s songs, embrace life’s bounties, breathe the breath of life and savor life to its fullest!
