I so want to be your friend.
I have admired you for so long...your peace and tranquility. Your beauty and simplicity. Your promise and hope.
Like any good friend, I am rejuvenated when I spend time with you. My step is lighter, my thoughts flow more clearly all the rest of my day.
Morning - you give so much and ask so little...only that I join you. You wait patiently each day - every day - with a new and wonderful gift: a brilliant sunrise, a sweet new song from the birds, glittery diamonds of fresh dew in early light. Every day you offer what I need the most - time to myself..or is it time for myself. Time for reflection, prayer, wisdom from the Word. Precious time with our other friend - Jesus.
You have abundantly, and you give so freely - no matter how many times I have spurned you Morning, thoughtlessly pushed you aside with the push of the snooze button.
But I have matured now, dear Morning. I am ready for a meaningful relationship with you. I finally have understanding and respect for all that you offer and I'm ready for a commitment.
So, I will meet you again tomorrow. Same time, same place. And I'm bringing a friend.....
