Good Morning, Lord

Good morning, Lord,
Thank you for the night,
For helping me to awake
To this morning so bright,

I pray for a good day
May I take it slow, without haste,
Make the most of each moment
Not one moment waste,

May I do my best
As I go on my way,
And may I to no one
Have a harsh word to say,

May I show my love
To each loved one,
Amid their troubles
Bring a ray of the sun,

May I accept
With a smile be strong,
All the little things
Which will surely go wrong,

May I with ease
Cheerfully greet,
Each and everyone
I might meet,

May I this day
Make a new friend,
The friendships I cherish
May they never end,

Of all I can
May I freely give,
Do good to remember, for truly,
This is to live,

For these blessings, dear Lord,
To You I pray,
And for You, my Father,
May it be a good day.

    Nice thoughts to begin the day with. Isn't God great?
