On any given day life may be difficult
Relationship strained to the breaking point?
Grief compounded with loneliness?
Self respect diminished by shame and guilt?
Serenity overwhelmed with anxiety?
A world of troubles tumbling in?
A heaving heart beating like a tempest?
Faith eclipsed by despair?
There is hope!
“Lift up your eyes upon this day breaking for you. Give birth again to the dream . . .
“Women, children, men, take it into the palms of your hands. Mold it into the shape of your private need. Sculpt it into the image of your most public self . . .
“Each new hour holds new chances for a new beginning . . .
“The horizon leans forward offering you space to place new steps of change.”*
Maya Angelou, On the Pulse of the Morning
