As I go through the day . . .


“As I go through the day,
keep my eyes open wide.
May I not miss beauty.
May I not miss joy.
May I not miss wonder.
Keep me awake and aware of the world….
As I rise with the morning, fog lifting slowly for my mind,
I pray not to forget these truths.”

As each day comes to us refreshed and anew . . .


“As each day comes to us refreshed and anew,
so does my gratitude renew itself daily.
The breaking of the sun over the horizon
is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world.”

Good morning . . . One Today ~


“One Today~
One sun rose on us today, kindled over our shores,
peeking over the Smokies, greeting the faces
of the Great Lakes, spreading a simple truth
across the Great Plains, then charging across the Rockies.
One light, waking up rooftops, under each one, a story
told by our silent gestures moving behind windows.
My face, your face, millions of faces in morning’s mirrors,
each one yawning to life, crescendoing into our day . . .”

Yes…it was a beautiful life.


If every morning,
You can find a reason to say,
“Yes, it’s going to be a beautiful day.”

And every day, you find a reason to say,
“Yes, it is a beautiful day.”

And every night, you find a reason to say,
“Yes, it was a beautiful day.”

Then one day,
You’ll look back and easily say,
“Yes…it was a beautiful life.”

Which person are you?


“One man gets up and says, “Good morning, Lord.”
Another man gets up and says, “Oh Lord, it’s morning.”
Which person are you?
You control what kind of day you’re going to have.
You’re as happy as you want to be.
It’s not our circumstances that keep us unhappy, it’s how we respond to them.”

~ Joel Osteen

This wet Saturday morning . . .


“Brushing the clouds away from my eyes,
I see clarity in the raindrop
and beauty in the first ray of morning sun…
Life is strange and wondrous…”
