    Through the mist of morning dew
    I watch the magnificent dawn
    Smiling at its arrival
    The Lord has blessed me with a new day

    A day unlike yesterday
    And nothing like tomorrow
    But I can’t say that for sure
    I may not be here to see tomorrow
    Days are like that

    Unpredictable as it is sure to be
    Today confirms that by grace all things are possible
    I could find that long lost phone number of an old friend
    I could make new friends
    Hear a favorite song
    I might say something of value to a young person
    I might fall in love
    With God, anything is possible

    Today is its own time
    With its own windows of opportunity
    Its own trap doors
    Its own sadness
    Its own joy
    A twenty-four hour miracle
    The first and only one of its kind
    Given to me
    Just for me
    Praise God

    be
