Dear Lord,

Many times we take for granted the ability to get out of bed and start our day without aches and pains.

Most of our days, Lord, starts with us running through our mental list of things that has to get done that day.

Please Lord, help us slow down so that we can appreciate the gift that you have given us–a new day, good health and wellness.

Thank you for enabling us to get up, to get dressed, to move around without assistance.

There are many in our mists Lord, that just do not have that ability, please be with them daily and help them, as you help us get through the simplest tasks.

Every morning with we wake up Lord, help us to remember that it is a gift and we should feel blessed throughout the whole day.
