“The most painful state of being is remembering the future, particularly the one you’ll never have.
We spend so much time thinking about the future. We make numerous plans and live in them. If only we could learn to live each day and have an awareness of it. So much slips by us. The joys of each day are not noticed. God gives us each day. If only we could pay attention and be grateful.
Compassionate God, forgive us for our failure to give thanks for what we have and help us to be more aware each day of the gifts we have. AMEN
