"Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Eph.5:14
Don't worry, she'll be fine as soon as she gets her first cup of coffee! Seriously, though, do you hate to wake up? This is our little friend Ella, just waking up. She hates going to sleep, waking up, and everything in between. It takes her a long time to get to sleep and a long time to wake up. Kind of like many of us. It's New Year's Eve as I'm writing this, and I must say there's an awful lot of hoopla going on what with Dick Clark, the lowering of the ball, and all the parties. New Year's Eve is all well and good, but for me, forget about a new year, I'm just happy to wake up to a new morning every day! Seriously, I think that each morning is like a tiny new year. Think of it; we start a whole new day with a blank slate and new chances to make things right that weren't, and also to help others. If you hate waking up, just think of the endless choices and possibilities of a new day. We can start over every day, and we can also be forgiven every day, because of the wonderful love and gift of our Lord. A new morning is just as much a gift as a new year. Even better, because we get so many more. So as I toddle off to bed, I wish you a Happy New Day!!
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lam. 3:22
