Today pulling myself together:
All of me, here, present, awake, ready.
Choosing peace, hope, beauty along with a strong will to work in a focussed, persisting way today.
Receiving from Him who gave His life a ransom for my soul, who is now God with us–Immanuel.
Responding with gratitude for gifts of life, forgiveness, love and mercy.
Trusting Him here for each challenge now.
Joy comes, and even spills over.
