up and out

        Today is a fresh, clean day. What if we decided right now to fill it with thanksgiving? We’ve all got plenty of reasons to look down, but what if today we chose, over and over again, to look up and out, which is the very best of all directions?

“He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me. . . .” Psalm 50:23

“Hope is the thing with feathers /That perches in the soul. . . .” Emily Dickinson
