a prayer to start the day

Mother of All, Father of All:
as I go through the day,
keep my eyes open wide.
May I not miss beauty.
May I not miss joy.
May I not miss wonder.
Keep me awake and aware of the world.

~Ceisiwr Serith

I am sitting at my makeshift desk in my living room looking through the front windows.  I see the mountains through winter trees, sun rising into a light blue sky.  I hear cardinals chirping as they enjoy their morning breakfast in my front yard and chickadees chattering in the backyard as they find the new seed in the feeders.  It is a new day bringing with it fresh beginnings, and I do not take that for granted.  I embrace it as if it were my birthday, and God has brought a special gift just for me.
