So I’m not there yet. . .

There is an old hymn that begins “When morning gilds the skies, my heart awakening cries, may Jesus Christ Be Praised.”  I’m so impressed with how beautifully this is written and in awe that this phraseology could even come into someone’s mind!  More importantly, I love how magnificently the author captures his focus and passion.   I’m keenly aware of how much I’m not there yet.  With every dawn he wakes with a heart’s desire to praise his Lord.  I couldn’t say that.  I wake up thinking about the day ahead, what I have to get done, what I will wear, how close it is to Friday!  I can sing the song, though; and as I do,  I can get a bit closer to the hymn writer’s point of view.  Enjoy the sunrise!
