Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved. – Mt 9:17

as a new day breaks
and the sun pours
new wine into the world

let me receive the new wine
not with my tired old shell
but with the skin of a newborn

let me see the world
not with 50 year old eyes
jaded with disappointments
too many to enumerate
but with fresh eyes
newly cured by the healer

let me not bring yesterday
and its preconceived notions
into this new day

let my tired heart
broken and healed
broken and healed
be open to the love
that God offers

let me surrender
to the grace that abounds
in an ordinary day
