As the sun rises in the east, may I rise to face your holy presence. May I traverse this day with a knowledge of your deep and abiding love. May the beauty of the angels' praise place a word of gratitude on my lips so that I might pass along a word of thanks. May the wonder of a blossoming flower remind me of your beauty and creativity. May the miracle of falling rain conjure up images of holy baptism, a visible sign of your invisible grace, your saving hand that holds me and leads me home.
