I choose to see today as not another mark on my way to weeks end.
Where is the joy?
Is it only found on restful weekends or is the joy for the gritty found in Mondays?
Does the ruddy one search and search until that joy thirst is quenched?
Does this gift of today, given to me by a holy creator have to be joy stolen because of mistakes and missteps?
Today as the moon rises on the water above- can it be joyful- as it is far more than a checklist or basket of worry. It was a day that air has filled my lungs, my heart has pumped fresh blood, my mind has learned and my compassion grown. Do you have days like these? Where you can’t find a single good thing about it until you turn off your worry and let the evening ease wrap you in?
May we be wrapped in the gift of today as it is not promised to many.
