The days are growing longer now, as the sun continues to stay overhead later into the evening and waken earlier each morning. When I rise from bed, I can already see the blush of dawn and the sky is starting to lighten. I could consult the newspaper and identify the exact difference each day’s length will be, but I prefer to discover the additional light myself, through my own experience. The numbers may predict the hours of light, but it is God who causes the sun to shine, the moon to light the night, and the world to move at his ordering. I thank you, Lord, for the daylight hours of work and play and for the night of peace and rest. You have given us a world of order and stability whose regularity is a sign of your love, your creation, your power, and your glory. Amen.
