Each day dawns a new beginning
Upon rising, I fill my lungs deeply with fresh air
Everything is become new.
The doves and robins sing their song
As clean clothes slide down over my shoulders.
Happily I rush downstairs for coffee and a bagel
Then I feed the indoor cat and outdoor squirrels and chipmunks
The air is alive with the musk of autumn that slept beneath the winters’ snow.
All is well in God’s abundant natural world.
Everywhere I look holds hope for a good day and a rich harvest for the summer.
Soon I shall plant tomato and cucumber seeds in little pots
With hope they will grow with great beauty and soon after
Plant them in the earth that has long awaited them.
At times I see myself as the earth in early spring.
I have lain dormant due to illness yet I find hope in God’s plan for my life.
“Consider the lilies of the field and the birds of the air”
See how good God is to them who have done nothing to deserve such mercy.
I am comforted in the knowledge of God’s even greater love for humankind!
Thanks be to God
I expect miracles everyday!
