Under the Orange

Every morning
the world
is created
Under the orange

sticks of the sun
the heaped ashes
of the night
turn into leaves again
(The first few lines from “Morning Poem” by Mary Oliver)

Psalm 118. This day is the day God has made… it’s not about yesterday, it’s not about tomorrow… it’s about today. Every morning the world is created and as the sun is setting on one dream it’s rising on another.

Great topic. I wonder sometimes how much 1 single day is would be worth? A million dollars? A billion? Priceless?
Today is the day that God made! It is to precious to waste. Don't look back, forget about what tomorrow brings...focus on the miracle of now!
Thanks J for reminding us to do so.

Yeah, what's the old saying...? Your life is the bank account and time is the currency...? something like that...
