Night and Day I bow down in awe to the wonders of being, to the tiny gifts offered that mean the world, such as the gift of acceptance, a smile and a word of encouragement when the way is difficult, new understanding that leads to better actions, the beauty that can be, love that changes everything. Night and Day my heart takes flight in thankfulness for the sweetness of what is and the hope of what can be when we live whole-heartedly and vulnerably, steadfast to the way of love, the way of mercy, and the way of peace. Night and Day my dreams grow full and happy from the stories of those steadfastly risking for goodness' sake, for helping in healing the desecrated places and the broken-hearted, for sharing and growing abundant enoughness to end suffering from want, for creating the space and the society where dignity is truly every person's birthright, lived, and fully granted. Night and Day love guides me. May I be steadfast in following love everywhere through every circumstance all my days. Amen.
