Ode to Renewal…Day by Day
by Dr. Angi (inspired by 2 Corinthians 16-18)

Discouraged we are not; rather, while our outer self wastes away,
Our inner wise-self continues to renew day by day.

Momentary affliction of pain and grief
Will be replaced by God’s universal glory and relief;
As we go on day by day…

Look not to what is in the physical plane;
but, to what is invisible, which may seem inane;
As we go on day by day.

For what is visible is temporary and transitory,
But what is unseen is forever, the eternal story;
As we go on day by day.

We are spiritually renewed with each passing day,
As the sun gleams each morning to light our way.
And the darkness of the night before,
Was a temporary contrast; we can endure;

As we go on day by day.
