“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne. I am the bright morning star.” — Revelation 22:16

I don’t sleep for long anymore.  

It isn’t that I don’t sleep well,

for I doze deep and dream,

but six hours or less is the limit

of my slumbering;

just a phase, maybe,

or part of aging; maturing

brings changes.

I love the quietness of morning —

a soothing newness

that nighttime can never be.

Night descends like an ending 

of something, a transition

to tomorrow; morning is renewal

and feels like hope’s promise.

Indeed it is — God has given

us another day to shine

forth His glory, to be created

over in His image,

Son casting light on sun,

sanctification becoming us.
