The Breeze At Dawn

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the door sill where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.

“So I say to you:  Ask & it will be given to you; seek & you will find; knock & the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

…Matthew 7:7-8, NIV

“Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.”

...Malcolm Muggeridge

“He drew a circle that shut me out-

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.

But love & I had the wit to win;

We drew a circle that took him in!”

…Edwin Markham (1852-1940)


And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying:

“Oh, that You would bless me indeed,

and enlarge my territory,

that Your hand would be with me,

and that You would keep me from evil,

that I may not cause pain.”

So God granted him what he requested.

…1 Chronicles 4:10, New King James
