Ponder: A writer once told me they do not like to write, they like to have written. A blank page issues a challenge: what will you do with me? It seems to me a new day calls the same question – and yet, it would be tragic to not enjoy living, only having lived. So what will you do today to ensure you savor not only the completion of your tasks, but the doing of them as well?
Pray: God of all time, and this time, right now, help me to live each moment – not just the easy ones, or the ones I’m proud of – but the hard ones, too. May I close my eyes this night grateful for having lived, and grateful I get to do some more living, tomorrow. Amen.
