Dawn in Suburbia
The weekday morning routine seldom varies. The coffee pot is percolating and this quiet time alone with God is my favorite part of the day. Funny, I never thought of this before, but caffeine and the rosary are an awesome combination! The caffeine stimulates me, while the rosary strengthens me providing the grace I need to start the day.
Today, while praying the Sorrowful Mysteries, I think of Jesus carrying His cross, and wonder what the day will bring. Family and friends come to mind, and I entwine these thoughts of them between each small bead.
Dawn in suburbia brings hope and promise. Today is a gift to be used wisely.
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing” (1 Thessalonians 5: 11).
