Look To This Day For It Is Life

Salutation To The Dawn
By Kalidasa

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:

The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty,

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!

Such is the salutation to the dawn.

Question: How are you going to look to this day?

    Claudia – what a beautiful way to begin this Friday! I have to say – it is Friday the 13th and that has always been an especially good day for us (my husband and I met on the 13th) – so while I always begin the day expecting good things – I expect special encouragement today and wonderful surprises!

    With all open senses soaking in what I can, and stepping forward with all I’ve got in hopes that I can live it to my very best. That was a beautiful Salutation To The Dawn. If God is to grant me another day, I will remember this when I wake in the morning.
