An Hour of Promise

The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day. — Proverbs 4:18, NLT

There is this hour

before dawn, no longer

night but before morning,

an in-between dark

that holds a promise

full light is coming,

the first song of birds

will sweeten the air,

each sleepy blossom 

will open to receive

the warm rays of sun,

and I sit here and count

the years, every morning

You have wakened me

to be part of this glorious

gift of living — a holy

reckoning, a reminder

I am a created being,

no happenstance,

no random convergence —

You who gave purpose

to the stars and charged

the mountains to rise,

made me, knit my soul, 

woke me to this wondrous life.
