Yesterday I was sitting with friends Jenny, Cheri, and Stef at home school group and we got on the subject of Fernando Ortega and this song came up. It has been on my mind ever since. I woke up thinking about it. My entire bike ride, the phrases kept running through my mind.
(If I could make it show up, I would)
This GOOD day! It is a GIFT from GOD!
So many times, I wake up dreading another morning. I slap my alarm off and mumble something about morning coming too early yet again. I drag my rear end out of bed grumbling about my list of work that I will not accomplish and I set off for another day of not accomplishing what I think I should get done.
I am so guilty of putting my nose to the ground and plowing ahead and forgetting to enjoy the GOOD day. Yes, I have fun, but do I truly treat it like a GIFT from GOD! Each day I get to enjoy with my husband and children, my family, my friends? Each day is a GIFT.
Yes, I have things I need to accomplish, and no I can not quit doing them, but I am going to strive to enjoy them a little more. Enjoy the smiles on our kids faces. Watch the butterflies. Marvel at God’s creation. Squish my toes in the garden dirt. They are GIFTS from GOD!
