Each day brings with it life and death
Each day new opportunities to be had joining with memories of past joy experienced and pain felt
Each day hoped for but never guaranteed
Each day wholly Yours
Each day holy ours
Thank You, God, for this day
May we be fully present to it
And freely give to it
All of the gifts that we carry for this day.
May they bring You life.
