2dQN2obThis is the day, God, that you have made.
This day when I am up too early,
when my to-do list is too long,
when I’m still dealing with fallout from the day you made yesterday.

This is the day, God, that you have made.
This day with the glowing sunrise,
with time to spend with family,
with laughter that will come in unexpected moments.

This is the day, God, that you have made.
Let me know your love throughout it;
let me live it well;
let me rejoice, and be glad in it.

Amen
