How wonderful it is to meet a new day with the abundance of this life before us! How wonderful to be called once more to give thanks, to laugh generously, to help we we might, and to delight in and further what is good and just! Marvelous and Mysterious Lover of Life may we join you gracefully in the dance that this day will bring: the dance with pain and the dance with rejoicing, the dance with our gifts and the dance of service, the dance of learning and the dance of teaching, the dance of loving and the dance of being loved. How wonderful it is to meet a new day with the abundance of this life before us! May we give thanks for it and be glad! Amen.
