Early morning. A new day. As the night gradually turns to day we have once again this invitation to live into discovery, to renew our weary hope, to open our eyes to see things we overlooked yesterday, a possibility for a fresh start, to leave behind the night and the day that is now past. In this moment, O God, as we begin again with normal routine, help us each to pause and give thanks for this day. And then to begin anew.
