Morning Reflections - A New Beginning

I have been asked by some of my new congregation members if I would provide some words with which to begin each of our days.  In years past I have done daily prayers and other series postings here at Radically Altered, so I have agreed to give it a whirl.  I will post them daily here at the blog (so please feel free to add me to your RSS feed or other reader).  Additionally, they will appear as links on Facebook and Twitter.

This new series we will call Morning Reflections.  My hope is to provide quotes, scriptures, thoughts and prayers that may inspire or provoke thought and action.  As with each new adventure, I am sure it will take a bit to settle in and get a rythym going.  As such, I ask for your patience and your input to make this series the best that it can be. 

So here we go:

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”
Arnold Bennett

Today's prayer - Holy God, we give you thanks that you are our source for new beginnings and new life.  We give you thanks that our new beginnings are only a breath away.  Help us to lean into our relationship with you that we too may experience the God ordained fullness of each of our upcoming moments.  Amen.
