Is Today the Best Day in the Year?

 


Consider the kind of extravagant love the Father has lavished on us - He calls us children of God! It’s true; we are His beloved children.
1 John 3:1

While reading a new book, I came across this quote attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”  I like that. It is so easy to bemoan certain days more than others, such as the proverbial Monday morning blues, that we completely miss all the beautiful things that our loving God has for us. I know, I have been guilty of that myself a time or a thousand. Why do we do that?

So rather than wait for January 1st to make yet another New Year’s resolution, I thought I’d beat the rush. Today is the best day in the year. When today is over, and Lord willing that I wake up tomorrow, it too will be the best day in the year. Then by God’s continued grace, the day after tomorrow, will again be the best day in the year. Wow; I feel better all ready!

So how about you? Ready for a July New Year’s resolution? Ready to have your best day in the year? May it be so. Peace and Blessings, friends. God is good. 😊

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24
