Today’s text

Psalm 90:1-2
Eternal and Immortal One, You have been our refuge in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, before You had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting, You are the Alpha and the Omega.

Morning praise

Before star light
startled the ancient
darkness, before light
awakened hope that life
could be, that beauty
should blossom,
Love lived,
Present, unknown
abiding and birthing
all that is that all
that is may know
the Presence of Love
Present always.

we know You,
Love who lives
in every love
we know.

Morning comes again
with Mystery within,
Presence of Love
abiding, undeniable,
Spirit beyond my own.
You abide every where,
in all, but known only
by those who love,
known … dearly
as they know
the curve of their
beloved’s cheek.

They … I know
this … Something
Who is no thing but
Thou, Someone
Who is Ever More
than a person, Beyond all
the searching eye can
see, More real
than life’s breath, giving
life beyond breath, eternal
life, the Presence
of Love Immeasurable
simply there, abiding …
within the heart’s
secret room.

Sense? Can this be
sense at all? Can any
words speak what the
morning heart simply
knows as the gift
of the Giver?

No one can name
You; Alpha and Omega,
not nearly enough.
You are no thing; You
are Love Abiding every
time and place, beyond
all that is, yet held here,
in this soul privileged
to know …

Thank you for this
joy above all others.

Pr. David L. Miller
