Just to live each day in the light it comes
Hunting for the treasures
sparkling in their not so hidden places
delighting to be found.
A New Day, A New Year
Morning by morning
earth life is renewed
Thanksgiving for sleep giving
new perspective in a new brighter light
Thanksgiving for second chances again and again
for lifelong learning of how to live grace filled.
Last year’s slips and slides
can be my teachers
to grasp hand, rope or ladder extended
to pull me out of self-inflicted
muddles and messes
A gracious life begins with
receiving it for myself
then the transfer of giving it away
to others is smooth as silk
gentle as a dove.
