Monday morning

In the early morning hours,
'Twixt the night and day,
While from earth the darkness passes
silently away.
Then it's sweet to talk with Jesus
In your bedroom still --
For the coming day and duties
Ask to know His will.
Then He'll lead the way before you,
laying mountains low;
Making desert places blossom,
sweet'ning sorrow's flow.
Do you want a life of triumph,
victory all the way?
Then put God at the beginning
of each coming day.
~ from Streams in the Desert, 11/28

"You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy." Psalm 65:8

When someone gets on your last nerve...

This morning I received an email, a devotional, with a quote worth passing on. Since we just returned from Europe, I'll post it and leave it at that. But it was too good to keep to myself:

Discernment is heart–kindness that sees beneath the surface of the off-hand remark; it hears the deeper cry of the soul. It asks, “Can you tell me more?” and follows up with compassion and concern. ~ David Roper

Mmm...
