The Magic of Morning

by Emmy Scott

Sunrises are like a clean state. They always remind me of God’s Glory. I am in awe of the beauty that God shares with us daily. No matter what rough times come upon us, there is always a new day — a new start.

Psalm 30:5 says, “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “His compassions never fail. They are new every morning.”

The Magic of Morning by Bud Morris

He may paint the morning purple

to display His majesty,

He can tinge it with a glory

that the dullest of eye can see.

He reflects it from the mountains

that were sculpted by His hand,

and it guilds the plains and prairies

as it spreads across the land.

He may emphasize its beauty

with a silver-misted shroud,

Or conceal its flaming splendor

in a somber cloak of cloud–

But the slightest hint of morning

breaking through the longest night

Fills the darkness with the prospect

of a future that is bright;

And the sunshine of its promise

coaxes flowers from the sod,

For the magic of the morning

bears the signature of God.

  2. Emmy:

    I really needed that today. His anger is momentary and his love eternal. Thanks for the reminder and the picture to go with it. Everyone is missing you in Guate.

  3. Love it, Emmy! Hope you’re doing well in Tulsa.

    Everyone is missing you in Colorado too! the picture is beautiful. The scripture in Lamentations has always been one of my favorites.

    In August of last year, several family members embarked on a night hike up Mount Baldy to watch the sunrise. Your poem brought me back to that morning! Thank you!
