I'll praise God for his gift of today and his promise for tomorrow.
When you woke up this morning,
for a variety of reasons,
you didn't feel like getting out of bed,
but you know you had to.
Because you must keep going.

In times like those,
and we all have them,
remember the blessing.
The blessing is not that we
must keep going.
The blessing is that we can.

"I have always felt that the moment when you first wake up in the
morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter
how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that,
during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen.
And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot.
The possibility is always there."

Monica Baldwin  
Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light.
Give thanks for your life and strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
And if per chance you see no reason for giving thanks,
Rest assured the fault is in yourself.

Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee Indian Chief
Every morning is a fresh beginning.
Every day is the world made new.
Today is a new day.
Today is my world made new.
I have lived all my life up to this moment,
to come to this day.
This moment--this day--is as good
as any moment in all eternity.
I shall make of this day--
each moment of this day--
a Heaven on earth.
This is my day of opportunity.
