Morning Joy!

Dear God,

Remembering our past can be difficult, especially when we have memories of broken dreams, painful ordeals and unresolved conflicts. Help us to remember that in the midst of the darkness there was also the light of your grace. The moments when life seemed to offer nothing became occasions of discovering that you are everything.

When we look back today, we can see you working behind the scenes transforming our difficult moments into a means of grace. Thank God, weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning!

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Today make a list of all the things you are grateful for - a child's smile, a renewed relationship, the car started, a stranger's kindness, a bill paid, an unexpected hug, a rainbow after the rain, the smell of spring in the air, sunshine or recovery after illness - when in the midst of a challenging day read your Gratitude List and rejoice!
