Walking before the day heats up, faith and hope
are felt in the sun’s eastern ascent.
Prayer and praise are felt in the early moist air.
Peace and mercy are heard in the hum of the new day
fresh out of the gate.
Grace and joy are seen as neighbors set forth
on their new journey for the day.
The voice of the Master is evidenced
in the low soothing call of the mourning doves
and the high pitched laugh of a nearby donkey.
A new day full of possibilities and dreams to realize spread forth.
God has given another chance
to fulfill purpose and realize paths of healing.
I humbly accept the challenge with gratitude and praise of His love.
