You are alive today.

Can you believe it?

Today you woke up, and air entered your lungs.

In fact, it never stopped entering your lungs, even when you were not aware.

You are alive today.

Today you are brand new.

Your cells are in the process of regenerating.

Your hair and skin is always beginning again.

You are alive today.

Your heart is new too.

Whatever happened yesterday,

That was yesterday. Today is today.

You are alive today.

You get to take in the sunlight, the fresh dew, the breeze,

It is all for you.

What do you think of that?

You are alive today.

Today was made for your neighbor,

But it was also made for you.

Just for you.

You are alive today.

What will you do with today?

One day closer to death,

But one more day alive.

You are alive today.

Today you will change lives,

And today others will change yours.

Just by being alive.

You are alive today.

You have freedom to rest, to jump, to sing,

To say no,

To say yes.

You are alive today.

You can speak up for yourself,

For others,

For Truth.

You are alive today.

Can you believe it?

Another day.

Thanks be to God.
