    An Unfolding Day

    An Unfolding Day O God, we start a fresh new day and week with gratitude that we possess the ability to begin again. No matter what yesterday held, be it joy or disappointment, it is now in the past. Help us to leave the painful moments of yesterday behind us, while carrying the lessons learned into a new day filled with possibility and opportunity. Give us a "can do" attitude as we follow through with our commitments, demands, needs of others while attending to self-care.
