Starting the day

Early yet again this day.
I turn the news off to avoid listening to the same old stories...
Instead, I start the day by walking out on the deck and beholding life:

How many are the trees
now playing with the breeze
'neath clouds that disappear
as caressing rays come near?

The salt-and-pepper sky,
so easy on the eye,
now vying with the blue--
the winner be the hue!

God--the great Creator
makes each day to be greater
by making all things new
and blessing us with view!

All the while, the trees
keep playing with the breeze...
oh, that WE could join that Song
and each man get along!
Creation stays alive,
(and would it even thrive!)
by fully trusting God.
Then why would such be odd?

Sometimes, we get into a rut.  (Sometimes?)
I used to get up every morning, fix my coffee, then turn the morning news on.  It took me a long time to realize that there is just not very much GOOD news on those shows!  Yes, I keep up with current events and what is going on in the world....but it doesn't have to be the first thing I hear in the morning!
There is much more to life than that.
