a brand new day

brand new day

i used to be a night owl. i used to joke that the reason i sneezed so much in the morning was because i was allergic to it. but now...dawn has become my favorite time of day. of course i have to give credit where credit is due - i have to credit middle age, and simply not being able to keep late hours. i have to credit a loving husband who brings me coffee and the paper in bed each morning. but even more, it's the promise of a brand new day that has made me a convert. each day, i'm given a brand new start...a clean slate...a world of possibilities. there's a line in the chorus of an old hymn (great is thy faithfulness) that i love which says it best:

"Morning by morning new mercies I see."

This mandala is so magestic...I love the way there is a hint of sky in the background...and the promise of the nurturing sun is so prominent. Reminds me of watching the sunrise over Old Orchard Beach in Maine. Magical!

when I first thought of this, my mind took me back to Peru, the Inka's golden disc that once hung in the Temple of the Sun.
Just stunning!!!
