"Every day I wake up to the face of God, and forget to recognise it" . I'm not sure when I first came across this, or in what form - the 'and' can become a 'but', and so transform the inner narrative of the aphorism; 'Every' can become 'Each'; 'day' can become 'morning'; 'face' become 'fear', and so on, with each transformation changing its meaning. This is probably the gentlest version, with the substitution of 'fear' one of the more interesting and challenging.
