Heavenly Father – When I awaken tomorrow, may my heart be ever grateful for Your gift to me of another day on Earth. Just as I, because of the death and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus, look forward to eternal life with You, every day please help me to look forward to seeing, hearing, feeling and touching the beauty around me. To hold a young child. To embrace one I love. To hear a bird’s song or the notes of a beautiful symphony. To listen in the silence of prayer for the beat of angel wings around me. To plan at least one simple, small thing to look forward to or accomplish this day. In doing so may I receive each and every day a glimpse of the joy, pleasure and peace which await me in heaven amidst the everlasting life, light and love of Christ, Your blessed Son. Amen
