Here I am, Beloved, meeting the new day. Love, wake me to what is needful and good for this day, for the ways I am called to create and nurture, by myself and with others, a little more of what this world needs: mercy, kindness, hope, another nourishing meal, another hour of listening deeply, another moment of beauty or wonder or joy. Prepare my heart to be challenged again, to thrive in the midst of imperfection, and cherish the extraordinary ordinary day. When my courage fails me, may I find myself aided by the courage of others. While I can, may I lend my heart boldly to those whose heart is failing them. Love, wake me to what is needful and good for this day, to the thousands of choices needed from each and from all to be lovers of life, to share the gifts we have, to create new blessings in the new day. Prepare my heart and send me on my way. Amen.
