Crocus on grave, Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

Today is the day of creation.
Any day that you choose to act,
choose to hope,
is the day of creation—
a day when anything is possible.

The future is dark,
but it is in darkness that babies are conceived,
that seeds sprout,
that death turns into life.

Celebrate the darkness,
because in it may be hidden
new opportunities,
and new life.
Celebrate life.
Celebrate your victories.

And may the God of hope,
the God of second chances,
the God of resurrection
bless you with strength and courage
today, and all the days of your life.
