Portland is teaching me many things.
One is to love each day for itself.
There's no use looking at the weather report
and letting my heart sink.
Each day can be a treasure if I accept it as such.
I am given the health and energy
to get up and go out into the cold, brisk mornings.
I have eyesight to see the clouds and
the bright, green moss.
I am given joy and peace in my heart
and am Loved.
And so today I will respond
with a grateful heart.
"This is the day the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it!"
