Normally, I am a late sleeper, but at the beach I get up early. This morning I was on the beach watching the sunrise by 5:30! It seems strange...where we are on the coast, we are facing south instead of east so it seems that the sun is rising in the wrong place!
I sat there singing praise songs, watching the waves crash into the sand and all I could think about was Emma. The same sun that rose to greet me, set to put her to sleep. I am overwhelmed when I think of the awesome ways God moves each day and how He is inching me closer to my baby with each new sunrise!
My prayer for Emma as I sang this morning came from a song I learned on a Via de Cristo retreat several years ago called On Eagle's Wings by Michael Joncas
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings
Bear you on the breath of dawn
Make you to shine like the sun
And hold you in the palm of His hand
