4954 morning

The period of time roughly between dawn and noon. Morning was an assigned time for worship, sacrifice and prayer. The morning light uncovers events of the night and provides opportunity for renewed daily activity. God’s blessings are received new every morning, and the start of a new day symbolises renewal and hope.
