I love mornings! The rising of the sun and it's going down are my favorite times of day. Unless you've learned to make a habit of rising early, you haven't experienced the joy that comes in the morning.

The Bible mentions mornings often, especially in the Psalms. I think our Heavenly Father wants us to experience morning joys.
One of my favorites is Psalm 59:17
But as for me, I will sing of your strength; in the morning I will sing aloud of your grace. For you are my fortress, a refuge when I am in trouble.
I also love Psalm 5:4
Adonai, in the morning you will hear my voice; in the morning I lay my needs before you and wait expectantly.
I am blessed to have a patio that looks out on my backyard. I love to sit out there with a cup of hot coffee for my quiet time with my Heavenly Father. I draw near to Him and He draws near to me. We have sweet fellowship in the stillness.

I love to hear His tender voice as I listen to music of the morning. The birds are waking up and visiting my feeders and drinking from the fountain and birdbaths.

I love the joys of morning: the early sky, the bird song, the stillness, the colors of sunrise, but most of all His voice...and the promise that his mercies are new every day. Oh, how I praise Him for that!
