How about a little U2 this morning?

This was one of the first songs I put on my iPod for no other reason than it’s feel good message about having a good day.   It is one of those joy-chaser songs that just puts a smile on my face or gets me dancing.

The song crossed my mind while we were on our way to New River in the Sonoran Desert.   I think the song is about hope and the notion that somedays in life are harder than other days. I think we can all relate to that. Right?fullsizeoutput_80ac

And guess what?  We have this amazing gift of choice.  Choosing how we want to walk into morning,  to make today… a beautiful day.

If the earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it. 

New River was a stellar example. This beautiful place we all call home.
