It’s a Carpenters sort of morning here in the southeast, but we can’t let that stop us from having a great attitude. Consider these words as you approach the day.
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive-to breathe, to think, to enjoy to love” Marcus Aurelius
and while you are thinking about that, lets remember where our life comes from. And maybe a trip to the valley of the dry bones will take us away from this rain and yuck and remind us why we are so privileged this morning to be alive.
5 This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel 37:5
and I just love this a few verses later
I will put my Spirit in you and you will live 37:14
How privileged are we to walk around today living with the Spirit of the creator in us.
To steal a simple prayer from Chris Tomlin’s new song Awake My Soul
Breathe on me, breath of God, breathe on me, I come alive, I’m alive when You breathe on me
