Mornings in the Land of Enchantment




Waking up to a beautiful sunrise in the mountains is such a blessing.  You realize you're somewhere special, even sacred.  The ancient landscape calls us to remember, to see this stunning Creation for what it is and to accept the responsibility we have as the caretakers of this precious gift.

All of your senses are engaged:  

the light coming over the treetops, 
       the crisp, cool air on your skin, 
              the smell of a pinon log fire, 
                     while the quiet of the early morning retunes
                     your ears to hear the small sounds of birds and wind
                              as you enjoy the best meal of the day.       

May we take the time each day to engage our senses and start off the morning  in such an intentional way, no matter where we are.  To quiet ourselves enough to hear what the Creator is saying to us.  To create a space where we can greet the day and welcome what it will bring.  To ready ourselves to be who we are called to be for ourselves and for those around us.
