"Give us this day our daily bread..."

Each day is a struggle. Each day has its challenges, its victories and defeats. Each day requires huge doses of patience, love, forgiveness, repentance, understanding, selflessness, and all other gifts of the Spirit. These precious heavenly resources seem to get used up faster than they can be gathered. They must be carefully cultivated and preserved, painstakingly gathered each day because these gifts don't keep.

Each day we must glean in the gilt edged fields of the scriptures. Each day we must gather the manna of spiritual inspiration to be able to feed our souls for one more day. We must find the spiritual and emotional resources we need to be able to nourish the souls of all who gather around our hearth and table.

So let the first light of our day be used to bask in the warmth of God's love so that we may bring that love unto the souls in our care. Let us fill our hearts at the well of the spirit at the first dawn of our day so that all the moments following can be blessed by the light. 

Devote the first fruits of your day to God each and everyday. We need it. Our kiddos need it. The world needs it.
