MONDAY, August 31                           Aidan

Psalm 9:1 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all your marvelous works.

I have been reading Forward Day by Day since I was in high school, as has my mother. Reflections from these pages have shown up for me in big ways on crucial days. I often marvel at the synchronicity this publication supports in my life and in so many others. The words of authors who wrote before me touched me in ways they could not have designed, as will, I’m sure, the words of authors who follow.

I write nearly a year before you read this. My words are inspired by ripples in the pond of my life. They meet you where you are and move you as God wills. I do not know your final destination, nor do I know mine. I have given you what I know today, and while it is not much, it is everything.

Thank you, God, for a safe space to tell your marvelous works. Thank you for changing ears and eyes and hearts. Thank you for growing understanding and infinite humility. Thank you for simple prayers. Please fill me with grace. Amen.

MOVING FORWARD: Who will you invite to join you in reading Forward Day by Day next month?
