On this rainy Monday morning, when my bones are achy and my spirit yet undecided, I choose Life. I spread my arms, lift up my head, and inhale this sweet new day. I breathe in, remembering, remembering, and then breathe out, letting go, moving forward.
Oh God, help me move beyond the inner workings of this very busy mind to see the beauty and the pain around me today. Help me to give, and help me to receive.
