I joined the Ten-Day Writing Prompt Challenge from Five minute Friday. I know I don't have to publish it, but I thought it would give me something to post for the next ten days, so here it goes.
Today's word is TODAY.
I was trying to come up with some thoughts for that word and was reminded of a favorite Winnie the Pooh quote.
"What day is it?"
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh.
I am not always good about seeing each day as a gift and a blessing. Some days are just plain hard and that's not going to change. But I do want to see each day as a gift.
I want to come to each today knowing that I am right where God wants me to be and rejoice in that. I want my today to be my favorite day.
I want to smile at the passerby simply because God gave me life and breath today and I am on the street walking with my own legs.
I want to wake up on every today and be grateful for something and everything. I want to remember that ever new today is a new beginning. A new day to try again, a fresh reminder of God's grace and truth. I don't have to worry about tomorrow because I have not been given tomorrow, but have been given today.
I have today. The sun might be shining or it might not, but I have still been given today and today is a gift. I don't need to wonder how I am going to make it tomorrow or a week from now because I haven't been given that. I have today, so I want to live in today and rejoice in this today.
"This is the day the LORD has made:
Let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
