When you arise in the
morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and
strength. Give thanks for your food and give thanks for the joy of living and
if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks rest assured the fault is
awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. We consider our plans
for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially
asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.
Under these conditions we can employ our mental faculties with assurance, for
after all God gave us brains to use. Our thought-life will be placed on a much
higher plane when our thinking is cleared of wrong motives.
Great Mystery help me! May I be thankful for the new day and all that comes to me.
