1. Walking slowly on the bridge across the bay I suddenly stopped to watch the sunrise as it slowly lifted its bright and glowing face above the horizon.
2. A feeling of peaceful serenity came over me as I stood there rejoicing in the beauty of that moment...a new day was dawning...full of promise and possibilities...a day that had never been before and would never be again.
3. The sun rays in the water captured the sheer beauty of the perfect stillness of the morning and the golden glory of God welcoming me to embrace the joy of this new day.
4. Reaching the end of the bridge I thought to myself that today is an opportunity to begin anew...old things have passed away...today is a new creation...God has given this precious gift to me to use for His honor and glory. What I do with this day is my gift back to Him. May I not squander this priceless treasure.
