As the light of the dawning awakens me to this New Day, bless me, O Lord that I may be courageous as the best in me is threatened and challenged, strong when the worst in me tries to take control of my living and enough wisdom to distinguish the best from the worst, so my choices will bring joy to my Life and peace to my soul. Amen
-- D. Wayne Martin
