Closed the morning with a prayer poem that :”Bear” Bryant carried in his pocket and read each day:

A New Day – penned in 1954 by Dr. W. Heartsill Wilson

“This is the beginning of a new day.  

God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good.

What I do today is important as I am
exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever.
Leaving something in its place I have traded for it.

I want it to be a gain, not loss–good, not evil.
Success, not failure,

in order that I shall not forget the price I paid for it.”
