Just this today, from William Law (early 1700’s), because it’s the first thing my eyes lit on this morning, and it lit up my eyes:

Morning is to you the beginning of a new life… God has then given you a new enjoyment of yourself, and a fresh entrance into the world; [so] it is highly proper that your first devotions should be a praise and thanksgiving to God, as for a new creation, and that you should offer and devote body and soul, all that you are, and all that you have to His service and glory.

Receive, therefore, every day as a resurrection from death, as a new enjoyment of life. Meet every rising sun with such sentiments of God’s goodness, as if you had seen it and all things new-created on your account. And under the sense of so great a blessing, let your joyful heart praise and magnify so good and glorious a Creator.

Treasure old and new.

To do today: Revel in God’s goodness.
