Only for today
Only for today I will be the best that I can be.
Knowing that like others I am under construction
Only for today I will let go of the things that I cannot control.
Leaving the work for my masters hands
Only for today I will be fully present
Living in the knowledge that the past is a cancel check, the future a promissory note and the present is the true Gift
Only for today I will be kind to all of God’s creation
To live in peaceful coexistence with all that our creator has made, is to honor Him
Only for today I will love and respect all others
Understanding that to truly do God’s will requires us to love all of his children
Only for today I will be grateful for all the gifts he has given me, especially the gift of writing and speaking.
May I always seek gratitude in my heart for the gift of life.
