This Is The Day

the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. I am trying Lord, really trying, but I really don't like single digit temperatures. I prefer, (and I know You didn't ask me, warmer). I prefer not to worry about my water freezing, which I know the time it did You thawed it when the temp was 6*, and it didn't this time. I prefer not to worry about the animals left out in the cold. I wouldn't even go to Debs to spend the night because I didn't want Boo out, but so many animals are left to be cold. I prefer not to think about the homeless people, nor the people whose electricity has been cut off, or all the other horrible things. I prefer to think happy thoughts, and happy ever afters. I prefer sunny skies with family and friends laughter, not tears and pain. But this is the day You have made and I am going to be glad in it. I really am. Because it is warm happy and the sun is shinning Through My Back Door where life is good. And warm and cozy and the coffee is always on.

  13. What a great reminder.
    My Mom used to wake us children up with that
    verse every morning. It is written on her
    grave stone as well.
    We are having nice warm weather
    here in California, but we are in a drought.
    We really could use some rain.
    Wishing you a blessed weekend~Sara

God is with us each and every day. He has made me a true believer. YES..".this IS the day the Lord hath made...let us be glad and rejoice in it..."

    Thanks, Dear......wonderful post!!!!
