A New Day and A Gift To You
Each day as we arise we have a time of adjustment we go through as we are transitioning from a state of sleep into a state of awareness. We may or not be able to take time or even be conscious of the awesome beauty that surrounds us at that moment. Each new sunrise brings a new day. Even in the hardest situations life brings us, we still can take comfort in the fact we have been given a new beginning.
As silly as it may sound the truth is, “We have never experienced today before!” Perhaps our actions may be similar, chores still need to be accomplished, animals desire to be fed and cared for, jobs might await our arrival. Each moment will unfold and become yet another unique expression of time unfolding.
Hearing a train pass by in the early morning brings curiosity of the engineer who is operating it. Today is a new day for him as he passes through town. As the fresh smell of coffee lingers in the air it invites one to enjoy its flavor and waking properties. Curtains may be opened to let in the morning light, rays of sunshine bring the hope for an awesome day.
New flowers burst forth into bloom, new seeds yearn to be planted into soil, and life in many forms scurry about preparing for their own surprises of the day. We can see through the filters of gratitude and great expectations, or fear, anger and past regrets. We may not be able to change circumstances around us at this moment, and we may be facing many uncertainties, yet we can be encouraged. We always have hope in knowing there is new mercy in each new morning we see.
