Today I am Thankful for the quiet of the morning. You see Cecil, the cat, woke me up at 6:10 wanting his breakfast. I decided to get out of bed and let Hubby sleep in. When I went into the kitchen it was completely dark but, within a few minutes,the sun started it's glorious entrance in the East. The sky started turning a crimson color just below the trees outside the patio window. As I watched, the crimson,orange and yellow color began to take over the dark sky. Now, the sky is a vivid blue, not a cloud to be seen, the house remains quiet except for the occasional sound of the heater igniting.
I have always enjoyed getting up early to be alone in the quiet. Even though my children are adults, and I am an empty nester, I enjoy this time to reflect, read, have a cup of coffee and feel the presence of God.
I hope you have a blessed day,
