Quiet of the early morning sky

Thin crescent moon above the hills far off

A trail of faint color lines the horizon

Beginnings of red

Beginnings of shades of blue blend into the darkness high above.

An evening owl hoots a few last times

Other birds stir,

Cool winter air good and crisp

Frost on the rooftops.

He stands and closes his eyes, prays in a familiar Spirit language;

Who knows what one day brings forth

Who can capture a moment, hold time in his hand,

Or hold a memory in his heart, 

A mind that wonders

A soul that yearns and longs.

Trust rules and lords over this new day

Even as the last

And those many years ago in clear, vivid detail.

With a kiss of love, wife off to work;

With a kiss of truth, my new day unfolds as a gift from God to be unwrapped.

About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
