Good Morning God

"Good morning God. This is your day. I am your child. Show me your way."
The words above are lyrics to a song. 
I used to sing this song every day to wake up each of my sons, Alexander and Dylan

Climbing Joseph's Coat
I would sing to them as I entered their bedrooms
then I would open the curtains to let the sun shine into their room and say;

"Good morning flowers. 
Good morning trees. 
Good morning birds 
and Good morning bees"

I'd hug each precious child and maybe give him a "scratch back" to start the day with JOY!

Joyful for God, Life, Love, Faith, Family 
and our Hope in Christ!

I still sing this song today. Now I am singing it to God as a prayer.
It always puts a smile on my face and joy in my heart!

Although the lyrics are simple they are full of meaning.

"And do not call anyone one earth 'father,' 
for you have one Father, and he is in heaven"

But to all who believed him and accepted him he gave the right 
to become children of God. 
They are reborn--not with physical birth resulting from human passions or plan, 
but a birth that comes from God.

(instead of following my own)

even there your hand will guide me,your right hand will hold me fast."
