Dawn



~Dawn~

The peaceful morn dawns
Bright and clear, with only
Few clouds to blotch the skies.
The darkness lay in dim array
As on the horizon soft color lies.
The sun comes up o'r the hills,

Hark! the soft whispering of the trees.
God's breath passeth by as in
The dawn they sigh.
While night quickly fades away
His little creatures come out to play.
Listen, now, something treadeth through
The woods; what it is, we do not know...
Ah! There it is! A fawn and a doe.

Oh listen now! The first trills
Of a happy bird.
Another answers in reply, singing back
A song; while the dawn fades away they
Will sing along.
Yes, it is still dark, but morn's rays
Do peek over the hills.
Every creature riseth up to do
God's heavenly wills.

Yes, this dawn will come to a close,
But another awaits tomorrow--
I will sit here at this window,
Hath God so willed;
And will watch His glory rising,
As with it, every day is filled.

Oh, Rose, what beautiful pictures and poem. :) God is worthy to be praised! Before dinner, I went out to our orchard, and sat quietly and talked with my Savior. His creation is so beautiful. :)

God bless, dear sister.

*Wonders where in your house you took that new profile pic.* Nice pictures, what makes them even cooler is that you actually did them and didn't utilize google xD.

Cassie~
Yes, I wrote it. :) Thanks! You too!

Mia~
Yep, I did! I took them from our back deck.

Rachel~
You have an orchard? Oh how lovely! That sounds like a good idea; I love to take walks in the late evening, it's very calming.
Love you, sis! :)

Terror-
My bed room, silly! Then again, you haven't been to our house in more than three years. :( Anyway, thanks. Google doesn't capture a mountain sunrise very well. ;)

In Christ,

Hi Neesie!
Welcome to my blog, thanks for stopping bye. :)
Thanks, I did write it. I can do some pretty good poetry when I'm in the mood for it, but not all the time. ;)
Thanks again!

Wow, I love your blog, your header is particularly amazing! you take very good pictures! I like your name:) :). You have a lot of animals! I love animals, but where I live not many people have anything other than a dog or cat. We have 11 chickens! That would be very cool to have so many loving animals!

Those photos are beautiful, and your description lovely! Thank you for sharing them.

I began to write a poem on one of our trips down to the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum, but I never finished it. I was in awe at how glorious the sunrise was and how it warmed the sky, and that the God who created it has saved me with His amazing grace! Psalm 97:6, "The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples have seen His glory."

I noticed that you will be going to the Father & Daughter Retreat, we will be going as well. :) It will be our first time going, and we are really looking forward to it! Maybe we will get to meet. :)

Joyfully in Christ,

Hi Emily!
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the comment. :) You went to the Answers in Genesis Museum? How was it? I've been wanting to go for a long time. :)
You're going too? Oh how lovely! I do hope that we can meet. (You won't be disappointed with the Retreat, it's something that I look forward to every year.)
Hope to see you there!

In Christ,
