So, this morning, perhaps a bit too predictably, I turn to Brother Glenn Kaiser. His album All My Days has given me succor over quite a few years now. I realize many of my Catholic and Orthodox friends do not care for this kind of music, but for some reason it resonates with me. I don't feel the need to analyze, justify, or defend it. Our Friday traditio is the title track off Glenn's worship album- "All My Days."
"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thess. 5:18). In the words of the antiphon for the Invitatory Psalm for Morning Prayer today- "Come, let us give thanks to the Lord, for his great love is without end."
How I long for Your presence
How I look to Your grace
How I search for Your hearts's desire
To walk with You... all my days
This despite me not being a very steady companion.
Each day is a new beginning. It helps that today is the first day of a new month. The holy season of Lent begins in less than two weeks.
