Another Day!

by | May 14, 2013 | Blessing

I couldn’t think of a better day to celebrate than this very day.

I don’t have to tell you how special it is. You know already.

Yes, both you and I woke up this morning and felt it. There was something incredible about that very moment and we couldn’t wait to begin.

Then without disappointment everything that I expected from it came true.


How perfect could this day be?

How exceptional would the next 24 hours be?

That, of course, was all up to me.

Some of you may have assumed that I was talking about the first day of Spring.

Yes, it just so happens that it is indeed the first day of Spring for some of us.

That means others would be left out, because my “Friends I’ve never met” are all around the world. I don’t want to leave anyone out of this great day.

This day is yours, too.

It is simply, and at the same time, most incredibly another day.

Another chance. Another gift.

Yes, you can label it anyway you want to, but there is no better description than “another day.”

What’s so exciting about that?

You are alive and God has chosen to give this day to you. For some, it all ended yesterday. You, on the other hand, can still pursue your dreams, chase after your children, watch the sunrise and set, listen to music, dance, run, skip, sit or lie down and enjoy this day in your own special way.

But don’t you dare waste it!

Let’s not say, “Live it like it is your last!”

No, not I! I will live it like it is my first day. All new, all bright and filled with possibilities.

This is the day you have waited for all your life.

Only you can make the best of it or toss it aside.

Yes, “Thank you God for this most incredible gift… “Another Day!”
