Light52: Week 20
At church a couple weeks ago, we sang "Morning Has Broken." Immediately thought of Leaf, my friend and student at MZMO who chose this song for our staff mix tape. She said at the time that she wanted it played at her funeral, which we all laughed about because it was so in character for Leaf to make such a lovely song morose.
And here I am, all these years later, just learning what she already understood.
"Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning.
Born of the one light Eden saw play.
Praise with elation, praise every morning;
God's recreation of the new day."
God's re-creation or God's recreation? Or...one and the same.
