Thank You For This Day - A Prayer
The flavor of my day is so much richer and sweeter when I pause briefly to reflect on how wonderful it is to be experiencing this very moment. I am brought back from thoughts of the future, and the past, and placed squarely into being.
Thank you, God, for this day. Thank you for my ability to witness the bright morning sun streaming into the living room, bringing the promise of what’s to come into the gentle sanctuary of my home. Thank you for this beloved body, the temple of my soul, my instrument for experiencing what it means to be human, and expressing your light in the world. Thank you for my beating heart, my eyes that can look with wonder at what is before me, and for my feet that move me forward, dancing (and sometimes stumbling) joyfully. Thank you for my voice that can say ‘I love you,” teach others and speak the truth in my heart.
Thank you, God, for all of it, another blessed day, learning to know myself as you.
May you remember in the middle of your days to stop and be grateful for them, and may this tool be a blessing. . .
