This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118: 24
This is so familiar (one of the Bible verses that I can spout off) and comforting. I often get busy in my daily life and don’t think about the many blessing that I have. I know that I don’t always rejoice, but I should.
I am writing this on the first full day of autumn, and although the weather feels more like summer, there are pretty leaves turning bright colors. The sun is shining. This is a gift from God. How often I get caught up in the hustle and bustle and don’t take time to enjoy the beauty that is around me. Certainly the news is rarely about good things. Many people are cranky – but what if I lived as an example – rejoicing and being glad. Possibly it would rub off on others! Possibly it would become a habit.
Dear Lord, thank you for this day that you have given to all of us. May we rejoice and be glad. Amen
