 Reflection

In the gift of this new day
In the gift of the present moment
In the gift of time and eternity intertwined
Let me be thankful.
Let me be attentive.
Let me be open to what has never happened before
In the gift of this new day,
In the gift of the present moment,
In the gift of time and eternity intertwined.
J. Philip Newell
