Morning of Goodness

The view from my back step at sunrise:

I had thought to post this morning's picture with the standard English greeting of, "Good morning."  But I love how Arabic speakers say it:
Sabaah al-khayr/ sabaah an-nuur. I'm told that it's a back and forth exchange -the first is "morning of goodness" and the response is "morning of light".

It gets even better. As a response in Arabic you can also say sabaah al-ward, "morning of flowers". That one is usually reserved for special occasions. How beautiful is that?


"Say only what helps, each word a gift." ~Ephesians 4:29, The Message
