Morning Glories

Listening to the radio on the way to work today, I heard a quote from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. One phrase from it was,
It's always morning somewhere.

Suddenly, I was thinking of the verse in Lamentations 3, that states that,
[the Lord's] mercies are new every morning.

Immediately, I understood in a fresh way that His mercy (defined as the withholding of what we deserve) is renewed every moment. It is a beautiful picture, isn't it? The sun is rising continually on mankind! Glory to the Son, who imparted such grace (defined as the giving of what is undeserved) to us!

Enjoy your morning glory--New Mercies!
