Just Before the Dawn,
Have you ever got lost in wondering why it seems to be so dark, so bleak and dreary?
And then found yourself running down a rabbit warren of destructive thoughts. Well, what about changing it around? What if you recognised that the darkest hour comes just before the dawn and that the sun always rises again to great a new day.
So instead of focusing on what you are in the middle of right now, learn to sleep peacefully through it, knowing that the sun will rise soon and the morning will bring with it new opportunities, light, warmth and hope.
Because even on the coldest day the temperature still rises to wake us. So lets learn to sleep peacefully, lay our troubles down before we sleep and not carry them into the new day.
Purple the Colour of Royalty,
What a wonderous sky. So stunningly beautiful and different. So uniquely purple. Yes, we often see yellow and orange and red and maybe even some pink, but such a vivid purple like this is maybe a bit more, rare. Yet, it is not out of place. It is still just as beautiful as every one of those other colours. Maybe you feel a bit like you are purple and everyone else is yellow, red, orange or even pink, but you, you’re purple.
You feel different, like you don’t quite fit in. Well today would you take a moment to ponder the beauty of the sky and realise that just as there are a million combinations in the sky, so there are people and you are beautiful the way you are. In fact, the bible tells us that as his children we are chosen and royalty. So maybe it’s time to embrace your royalness.
Oh, What Grandeur,
Have you ever been to one of those big old buildings and you feel breathless just looking at the craftsmanship and how much effort it must have taken to build such a work of art all those years ago?
It’s great that you love a good piece of art, but did you ever stop to ponder how much more valuable you are and how much more effort and design must have gone into even just one miraculous cell in your very being and you have a lot more than one of those in you.
What about the blood that flows through your veins or the very skin on your fingers that is uniquely yours?
What beauty, what design.
