I HAVE LEARNED that if I will pay attention from the very beginning of the day, there will be reminder after reminder that this day — as all days do, of course, even the days each week that are given over to work and to school and to travel and all the rest — that this day of all days each week belongs to the One Who made us, the One Who sustains us, the One Who has chosen, inexplicably it seems to me sometimes, to bless us with life in this new day.
