Beloved, we are so glad for the opportunity of another day, to open the door to love once again, to pick up the pieces of what we broke yesterday and to try and mend them today, to tend to what truly matters. Let the song of hope refresh the world. In our rejoicing, may we sing and share that song. Today we have choices, always, as ever, within our constraints - our faithful promises, our aspirations, the rules by which we must live, the limits of the body, the limits of the mind, the limits of our abilities, the limits that hold us together, shape us, and guide us. For a song to have a shape, a melody, a harmony, it creates within constraints. May we do likewise, creating what is needful and good within the limits of our lives, glad for the opportunity of another day. This is the day we choose, so may we choose well, generously, profligately, riskily to fulfill those faithful promises, to create what we and this world needs, to abide with hope hour by hour in this amazing day. Amen.
