March 20–A New Day, A New Song!

A new day we have been given. And today just happens to be the first day of Spring!

Thank You for this, LORD! Thank You for the clear signs You give us of Your order and wisdom, beauty and love. LORD, thank You for the lengthening days of sunlight, the warmer temperatures (even when the chill and snow still jump in on us). Thank You, LORD, for the evidence of renewed life and color in the grass, flowers starting to poke out of hardened soil and tightly folded leaf-buds dotting the trees. And, LORD, thank You that people just smile a little bit more, and a little more freely when the promise and hope of life are evident to them.

Open our eyes to see Your love and power at work all around us. Open our hearts and spirits to accept Your truest evidence of the promise and hope of life through the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ. Open our minds and mouths to sing a new song of thankfulness to You in this new day, this new season and every new day. You alone are God. You alone are the giver of life. Thank You, LORD!

Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, praise His name; proclaim His salvation day after day.  Psalm 96:1-2
