in awe at your wonders


The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
    where morning dawns, where evening fades,
    you call forth songs of joy. (Psalm 65:8)


Sing to me in bold letters and italics, God. I want to hear You burst into song. There you are, in the sunrises and the sunsets and the trees suddenly turned green. Let me be ever more aware, ever more in awe. 


Karoline asked me to take the long way home the other day. She wanted to watch the sunset over the lake. I readily agreed and we pulled over to take in the light show. I gave her my phone and told her she could take as many pictures as she wanted. She did and they are gorgeous, but they don't begin to capture the real thing. 

This weekend, be filled with awe at His wonders.

If #morningrun blesses you, please share the image so that others can find us here?

Motherhood can feel like the loneliest vocation in the world. Surrounded by children, who frequently bring us to our knees, both literally and figuratively, we can be overwhelmed by isolation. Mothers need community. We can be community for one another. We can encourage on another and hold each other accountable. If you like these short devotions, please share the image and send another woman here. And when you're here, please take a moment to pray with another mother who is visiting. Leave a comment and when you do, pray for the woman whose comment is just above yours. Just a moment--blessed--will begin to build community.

I like to pray when I run in the morning. Often, I listen to Divine Office and pray Morning Prayer or the Office of Readings. Then, I just take up a conversation with God. I'd love to pray for you! Please leave your prayer requests below and we can pray for each other, no matter how we spend our morning prayer time. Meet me back here tomorrow and I'll share the ponderings from my #morningrun.
