Centered in God, I realize my life is a wonderful gift.

Each morning there is a gift on my pillow, waiting to be unwrapped. As soon as I open my eyes I see it--a bright new day has dawned. The best thing about this gift is that I get to make it whatever I choose.

I begin with gratitude, giving thanks for my life, my breath and the possibilities of a new beginning. I go about my activities with enthusiasm, noticing love and beauty and laughter. If a conflict arises, I bring what I choose to the situation. I add compassion, forgiveness and understanding.

Filled with gratitude for the joy of being alive, I conclude my day with prayer and meditation. I close my eyes and I am restored by a night of peaceful rest.

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.--Psalm 118:24
