Mourning Mercies

“Where’s my joy,

This early morn?

Tucked beneath

The sheets in mourn.

Numb and raw,

I walk the floor.

Calling out,

“Save us Lord!”


Pink and purple,

Pastels too.

Only You

Can bring us through.

Evil battles,

Raging war;

Broken hearts,

You WILL restore.


Turn the page,

You make brand new.

Morning mercies,

Trusting You.”


“Through the LORD’s mercies

We are not consumed,

Because His compassions fail not,

They are new every morning;

Lamentations 3:22 NKJV

“God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble…

God will help her when

Morning dawns.”

Psalm 46:1 & 5 ESV

      1. That is beautiful Susan:) I waited until I got home from work to read the Scripture:) Yes, may my enemies perish, as my Friend rises in his Might! Marking your name in my Bible next to this verse:) Thank you:)

  1. I’m usually up before 5:30 each morning. Just before I take little Odie out for his morning constitution, I often thank the Lord for a brand new and beautiful morning. I say that not having a clue what awaits me on the other side of the door, be it clear, rain, fog, cold, hot….

      1. The kids are sweet, its the brokenness of their parents lives that tears you up:( But because God is Faithful, He shows us love in the smallest of things the kids do and say:) This morning, one little boy rescued a Christmas ornament that dropped out of a school bag unnoticed. It was a PK “Shepherds” staff with figure prints of “red” to mark the stripes. Yes Lord, You lead us through, one day, one child at a time:) blessings friend, d
