Awaken, each and every heart, to the beauty of love and the beauty of this world, to the beauty we can choose for blessing one another, the beauty that rebuilds after destruction, the beauty that perseveres to bring peace, the beauty that lets us breathe in expectant wonderment and grateful joy. For the miracle of a new day, let us rejoice! Awaken, each and every heart, to the beauty we may choose to make, because we are struggling now, because we are in tough and awful places, because we are at great risk, because we are dissatisfied with pettiness and greed, let us awaken to the beauty we may choose to make and create it, bestow it, work together to bear it into being. For the miracle of a new day, let us rejoice! Awaken, each and every heart, to what we share in this earth, in this life, to the love that can bless us all if we accept the risk and the vulnerability, to the healing and hope and creativity that we may make, cultivating this miracle of life, this miracle of a new day, all these reasons for rejoicing. Awaken, each and every heart, to the gladness that is ours to choose. May we choose well. Amen.
