Good Morning From Bluff

If you wake me each morning with the sound of your loving voice,
I’ll go to sleep each night trusting in you.
Point out the road I must travel;
I’m all ears, all eyes before you. ~David the Psalmist

The season is quickly changing. Fall’s crisp air is hovering but the sun is still shining brightly, especially this morning.

The ferry is already returning from Stewart Island with tourists, workers and locals returning to the mainland.

Flower petals reach longingly for the last bit of sun as it’s time for them to begin the winter sleep…not long now.

Signs of fall are undeniable.

I sense the spiders have spun all night taking advantage of the empty spaces left by the falling pedals.

It’s morning in Bluff! My day is planned: exercise, window painting and other household chores and watch for the solar eclipse…

then I’ll take some time to receive God’s loving-kindness and spend some lingering moments in the sunshine before it wonders off to heat another part of the world.

Good morning!


I was awake early this morning which rarely happens. I watched the sun come up as the birds sang their songs of praise. Calm and quiet enveloped me. The light of Love was shining down on me like a warm embrace. I didn’t hurry to the tasks awaiting me…I just sat there. I was given a gift. A brand new day. A fresh clean slate. My soul is refreshed, calm, and serene. I might need to get up early more often.

Once I did get going, I put together a little video for you. Something new for me. 😉
