May this mind be in you,
Enriching and enlivening you
Now and evermore,
Of Christ, the author and
Finisher of your faith.
Live awake to the moment...
Taking time to breathe in and out gratitude,
Time to replenish your life, love,
Energy, and joy.
Recognize eternity in the moment;
Savor your savior who has set you free to be.
