Everyday is to be Cherished

 A new day starts.  It's filled with possibilities.  It can start on a positive note or a negative note but where it goes depends on you.  I pray that each of you (and me too) find a way to see the good in everything that comes.  A way to turn the negative into a positive.  I hope you see all there is to praise our Father for and glorify his name in all you do.
 After my morning prayer and asking God for words to share, these were the ones I opened my Bible to see:

Living in Light of the Day ~ Romans 13:11-14 (NLT)
  This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out.  Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 

The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here.  So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living.  

Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see.  Don't participate in the darkness of wild parties of drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy.

Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don't let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.
So how will you show your love today?  Will you be the inspiration for someone having a bad day to wish they had your joy and want to find their own?  Will you be the light of God today?
My suggestion....fall in a good mood today.  Find joy in the least of things.  Love the moment and leave the future in God's hands.  Find the child in you today.
Side note:  All the pictures were off the internet except for these last two.  I could cry when I see the joy my Grandchildren are finding in their day.  The top one is Zach and the bottom one is Ki'a with their neighbor.  They raked these leaves for the soul purpose of fun.  What a great way to enjoy your day!
Love Ya'll......Tracy :)


  1. Thanks!!!! Blessing to you this day!!

  2. Amen, seestah! Preach it! So much about life is just deciding to be joyful regardless of the circumstances around you. God never allows what we can't bear.

    Beautiful post...loved it!
