Morning is the theme this week. With a photograph, I show something that describes my mornings.
I learned a long time ago, when I start my mornings by reading the Bible and spending time with the Lord, my days go better. Through our time together, He prepares me for what lies ahead.
At morning’s first light,
may I lay aside other things,
To read from God’s word
And hear His soft whisperings.
Sometimes I get up early enough to have quiet time with the Lord while watching a sunrise!

Amen! Yes you absolutely right. Spending time with God, reading His word and reflect it will becomes our strength to face all of our problems 🙂 Beautiful sunrise photo, sis. I will use it for my next post. Blessings on your beautiful morning.
Thanks, Karina. You may use it however you want. I added some Scripture to it, also, which you may like.
blessings on your day!
Thank you sis. Already grabbed and I use as my iPhone wallpaper 🙂
How sweet, Karina. blessings on your evening! sis Sue
I love to see Bibles that are tappered from devoted use!
Amen, JD. I read from several, but the Bible in the photo is one given to me by my parents years ago and is my favorite. Thanks.
Isn’t it amazing that if we spend the first hours of our day with God, everything falls into place? It’s not that we can just breeze into the day without our share of struggles, but we can be sure that God’s presence is with us.
Thanks for a most wonderful entry.
Amen. Sometimes, I think the enemy on purpose tries to sabotage our efforts to seek God first. God wins over him every time, though! blessings for sharing

While I do like holding the Bible in my hands, my daily Bible reading has been on my phone, and I think I’m wearing out the sleep/wake button. Does that count? [chuckle] Beautiful images, Sue!
Bible apps are great. I have one and listen on my way to work for part of my daily. I just have this ingrained habit of underlining and writing notes in the margins. Don’t know how I’d ever give that up! Blessings and thanks.
I have one I listen to as well, although I’ve been listening to sermons more so lately, and should get back to listening to the Bible, too. Thank you for the reminder!
I doubt your a slacker! 🙂
LOL…. Oh yes, I can be at times!
Beautiful sunrise photo! Yes starting our day off with Him helps our day seem better. May you have a blessed week!!!!
You, too. And thanks so much!
Starting a day without the Bible and time with our Heavenly Father is like a day without SonShine. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
Sue, you are so right. The day does go better if we start it off with the Lord. I remember years ago someone saying (Maybe it was our pastor), “You miss a day of prayer and God knows. You miss 2 days of prayer and you know. You miss 3 days of prayer and everyone knows.” Just goes to show how much we depend on God to see us through everything. Beautiful post and beautiful photo.
Thanks Julie. Very wise words. Things get ugly when I try to go it alone without spending time with the Lord!
What a beautiful post. I know my day always goes better if I stop and read scriptures first.
Amen to that! Thanks for stopping by. Sue
Your pictures are beautiful! When I get to heaven, I will be able to take pictures like that! LOL!
I agree with your comment to Julie, if me and Jesus don’t start out together, my day is a mess! Thank you! 🙂
Fortunately, God has helped me learn this principle and I try not to miss my mornings in the Word. However, it can easily become just a routine instead of really interacting with Him. That’s the part where He is still growing me! blessings and thanks for the compliments. Photography is such a relaxing hobby. I am still learning, but very glad it blesses others. When I get to heaven, I want to try again at learning to play the piano. Tried for six years taking lessons, but it was not my talent. I figure after about a million years of lessons, maybe I’ll get better! 🙂
I took lessons for 2 years but then we moved and I never was able to continue. You will play perfectly in Heaven! 🙂

What a beautiful way to start the morning. What a lovely morning walk picture.
How sweet of you. Thanks for the feedback and very glad it was a blessing!
I like it better when morning starts at the crack of noon! Love the photos!
Ha! I wish. Blessings!
Love a good ‘frayed’ bible. It shows it’s been well read.
