It is calming knowing there is a whole extra hour in my day. There is a serenity in the brightness of the stars in the navy black sky.
In my mind I hear "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference." My life is a journey, a beautiful adventure.
I'm so grateful for this moment. I grateful even as my dog begins to fully wake and find her toy with the sixteen squeakers. I'm grateful to laugh at the silliness. I'm grateful to wake in a peaceful serenity and start my day in bliss. I'm grateful to have ample time to meditate. I'm grateful for the twinkle of the stars in the sky. And I'm grateful for this beautiful journey, this beautiful planet, and my beautiful family.
What beauty can you find today? When was the last time you woke early just to sit under the stars? What helps you feel at peace?
May today bless you with serenity. May you find beauty all around you and enjoy these simple moments. Have a beautiful day and weekend!
