A Little Yellow Bird at Sunrise

I literally ran to get my camera when I saw this little guy outside my window this morning. Even though behind my house is a dense forest which has dropped most of it’s leaves, when the sun comes up on the horizon to the East, it has to filter through a hundred trees to get to my house. But somehow God chose this morning to light up this beautiful bird on the birdbath on my deck just outside my window. Set against the dark browns and grays of winter leaves and trees, it seemed to reflect hope for the Spring to come. And God seemed to say, “Joy comes in the morning…” I needed that today.

Psalm 30:

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up
and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,
and you have healed me.
O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;
you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.

Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.

As for me, I said in my prosperity,
“I shall never be moved.”
By your favor, O Lord,
you made my mountain stand strong;
you hid your face;
I was dismayed.

To you, O Lord, I cry,
and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
“What profit is there in my death,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it tell of your faithfulness?
Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
O Lord, be my helper!”

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
That my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
