As I face each new day, I find myself agreeing with C.S. Lewis’ observation that:
“The moment you wake up each morning, all your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals.”
But we must respond in kind: “The first job each morning consists in shoving it all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other, larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in.”
