Wake up, my spirit; awake, lute and harp; I myself will waken the dawn. - Psalm 57:8
I love to wake up early and join the dawn in bringing in the day. With my porch windows wide open, I breath deeply in the cool mountain air and fill my ears with birdsong of lute and harp.
John O'Donohue reminded me, in a recent podcast, to hold images of beauty in my mind for whenever I must be present to suffering. This morning's beauty will remain in my heart all week as I face untold suffering in the hospital.
How are you awakening your spirit, this morning?
