Five things to be thankful for right now:
1. Another day of life above the ground- that’s a good thing!
2. A day with purpose and promise.
3. A chance to create for each time I focus my mind I create a new beginning.
4. All of the supportive people in my life.
5. The full shelves in my pantry and refrigerator which represent food that will nourish me throughout the day.
Your turn- what are you thankful for today? Write it down in your journal.
Have a blessed day.
What do you have in store for me?
A simple and wonderful way to start your day is to sit in a quiet place and close your eyes and ask this question. Then just sit and be quiet and still. Breathe.
When you are ready to, open your eyes. Write in your journal whatever comes out.
I wish you a blessed day,
I welcome the new day.
May I not rush around so much that I miss the beauty that is all around me.
May I thank one person today.
May I smile more than I frown.
May I think loving thoughts more than self defeating thoughts.
Thank you for this day!
A fresh new day to do with as you please…the possibilities…
Whatever your plans for the day, enjoy!

Blessed is the Eternal our God, who has awakened me to the new day and called me to be free. Blessed is the One who opens the eyes of the blind, who provides clothes for the naked, who brings freedom to the captive, and whose power lifts up the fallen.
Blessed is the Eternal our God, Ruler of the Universe, who removes sleep from my eyes, slumber from the eyelids. Help me, Lord, to be awake this day to the wonders that surround me, alive to beauty and love, aware that all being is precious, that we walk on holy ground, wherever we go.
