Morris Goldstein — In the morning hours of a new day…

In the morning hours of a new day we take a moment to give thought to what this day may mean for us.  What is a day in a person’s life?  Isn’t it the most precious treasure that can be given to us?  If we were denied this day in which to live, you know full well, all of our possessions would mean nothing, our fondest hopes and plans would be of no avail.  First and foremost, therefore, is the gift of a new day, one more day of life.  Therefore, let us begin the day properly.  Let us thank God for this wonderful gift.  Let us resolve not to waste one hour of it.  Let us resolve to share happiness with those who are closest to us- our family; our neighbors; our associates.  This is the greater meaning of the verse we read in the Holy Bible:  “So teach us to number our days that we may get us a heart of wisdom.”
