3/20/07 Our Father in heaven, we give you our thanks for the rest of the night and for another day of opportunity and challenge. Guide those challenged with decisions that impact this nation and grant all of us new levels of understanding and patience. Amen

Yet, many mornings I awake with the other noun leading the way into the day.
