Joy, I am so glad to meet you again this morning. Come on over and watch in wonder how the flowers open to the new day, how the bees feed themselves and their communities and this giving and receiving with the flowers fructifies the world. Joy, I am so glad to meet you again this morning. Let us dwell here together for a few moments to listen to the breeze rustling the leaves of the trees, to the morning calls of birds to breaking their nightly fast, to the way sleep shakes itself off and hurries away to where night is waiting patiently. Joy, I am so glad to meet you again this morning. Wherever else I may go today, whatever else I may encounter, may the blessings of the waking world return me back to gratitude, to wonder, to the joy of being in this new day. Amen.
