Morning has broken

Morning has broken,




Like the first morning....





Blackbird has spoken,





...like the first bird.




Praise for the singing, praise for the morning



Praise for them springing fresh from the world.


Sung by Cat Stevens. Lyrics by Eleanor Farjean.

I wanted to share one of my glorious mornings I had this weekend with you.

Thank you so much from another northern Michigan resident. Right now with all the mud, bare trees and no sun, you've brought back home to me why I believe living up here can be literally spiritual.

Oh this is lovely... what awesome photos. The pictures and the song absolutely warmed my heart this morning which is just perfect for my walk on this cold day to work!
Thank you!! ♥

What a morning you must have had! These photos are just stunning! I sometimes I wish I didn't live in suburbia. I mean, it is nice to have a store within walking distance, but just once I would like to step outside to see a deer or a racoon in my back yard. I guess I'll just have to settle for squirrels, rabbits, and birds.

Stunning photographs!
