I have two photos here which separately shows an early bird early in the morning.
You will need to have sharp eyes to see them.
The second photo was taken by me at a river estuary near Luk Keng when the sun has just risen and the egret was looking for its breakfast.
It was such a magical moment to be alone on the beach when the sun has just risen above the horizon.
It marks the beginning of a brand new day.
This is a song which I like – Morning Has Broken:
Morning has broken like the first morning,
Praise for the singing,
Praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the world.Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass.
Mine is the sunlight,
Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play.
Praise with elation, praise ev’ry morning,
God’s recreation of the new day.
The photo was taken by YM Chan to whom credit is due.
I am filled with gratitude to the responses I have received to my previous post – Prayers for Mom.
At the time of writing, almost 60 responses were received.
All of them offered prayers, good wishes, blessings, healing thoughts and even positive reiki energy to mom. I know I am unable to thank each of you enough.
I am deeply moved and would like to thank you all on behalf of mom who will be having an operation today. I know I have very kind blogging friends around me and the blogosphere is full of love.
But it seems the good Lord has kindly showed us the way and I hope that He will increase His mercy on us and the whole world.
Eternal God, please be with my mom today as she goes through the surgery. I know we deserve nothing.
I hope , whatever happens to mom in the surgery, this is a rebirth for her.
I sincerely hope it is a day when the sun will rise with all its glory and warmth.
For this, I am showing a sunrise photo taken in Langkawi, Malaysia.
This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is Sunrise and Sunset.
We love beaches in Langkawi so much that we were always out on the beach when we were there. We did not stay on any beach for a long length of time but wandered from one to another trying to enjoy the best sights and the best moments. The best moments, to us, include sunrise, sunsets and moonrise.
But wait! the moon appeared, a different light mellowed upon the sea. The moonlight refelcted peacfully from a hotel located next to the beach. The moon light cast a giant shadow of the hotel on the calm water. People walked along the beach enjoying the beautiful scene. It was this sort of timeless moment we have been waiting for.
We took a deep breath and soaked up as much of nature as we could. On seeing this breathtaking sight, we were filled with gratitude and were thankful we were given another new sunny day!
