It is five o’clock in the morning and I have no worries in the world, the television is off, the mail is not running, no pads, and no phones. As I turn to my right my wife sleeps in a state of comfort, so I shall only gaze at her beauty while holding myself back from disturbing her peace that will elude her during the waking hours. As I sit up with elbows on knees and face in hands I thank the Lord for another day. As I slowly rise, although difficult, I realize that there are many who cannot perform this act on their own, so once again I thank You Lord for making this possible, for I remember when. Standing tall now as I head towards the window to peer into the night where the hidden lie in wait I think of when the sun comes home to brighten my path, for soon its light will be needed to send the darkness back from whence it came. As the light that is of this day begins to bully the darkness that is of this night I wait with unbridled anticipation for what blessings may come on this day.
“Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
I thank You Lord for another day……
