New Every Morning*

I was reading through this old post of mine and I must say that with the kids, everyday is really a new day.

Last night both the boys slept unbelievably early. 8.30pm and both boys were in dreamland! But as it happens quite often they will not sleep soundly for they would be too exhausted and so will have all kinds of dreams. Micah for one, talking in his sleep, was still giving instructions to Max on some kind of play.

Anyway, back to what I wanted to say...

They slept early and so this morning, Micah was actually up about 6.45am and he managed to say goodbye to Gadget-daddy before he left for work. The we went back to the room and lay on my bed. He had his milk and waited to see the sunrise. We chatted a bit about the rotation of the earth, but Mommy was just too sleepy. I fell asleep before he did.

But the the thought that crossed my mind as I was drifting back to sleep was:

Wow, Micah, your first sunrise.

There are so many "First" for them still, and life is so magical.

The most wonderful thing with the kids is that for them Life is a new start every day with the sunrise. New every Morning.

What a Life!

*While typing the title for this post, the words of this hymn came immediately to mind:

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases
His mercy never comes to an end
They are new every morning, new every morning,
Great is Thy faithfulness O Lord,
Great is Thy faithfulness.

What peace there must be in your heart, feeling how it was like when you First recorded a First....and still can record Frists...

There is a magical feeling to FIRSTS!

Life is just so wonderful, isn't it. Not all firsts can be wonderful, but still, there will always be the first step to recovery and finding God in unexpected places. :)
