Sunrise. Sunset. All day long, I thank you Lord!

Dear Lord,

As the sun rises and awakens the dawn, I thank you for the light that breaks the darkness and the gift of another day. A precious, never to be had again 24 hours to love and to serve.

When the sun sets over the horizon, I thank you for softening the covering darkness with glorious colours and brightening the nightsky with the twinkle of sparkling stars. For the quiet stillness that invites sweet, peaceful sleep. And the joy splashed across memories of this day that will soon be gone.

For each moment and every blessing in between, I thank you. Because you are with me every minute and in everything. Always by my side and on my side.

Thank you that from beginning to end you walk with me always.


Sunrise Sunset 01

Sometimes all we can do is stand in awe of God’s majesty and praise Him with thanksgiving!

 From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised. ~ Psalm 113:3

This post is inspired by God Will Be With You Through the Whole Process entry in Holley Gerth’s uplifting devotional What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days released this week. Pick up a copy and I promise you’ll be blessed. You can also link-up with Holley and the Coffee for Your Heart community for an heartwarming cup of encouragement and inspiration today.

Special thanks to the talented Mary Morganelli and a friend who prefers not to be credited for these spectacular pictures that take your breath away.

Thank you  Holley Gerth
