A Daily Celebration
Psalm 118:24: “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Yesterday, after doing preliminary research I met with a client, earning enough money to pay off several bills. I called my editor, and followed up on several business leads. After ordering my son’s graduation announcements, I picked up my daughter’s prescription at the pharmacy and dropped by the grocery store. While working on this book, I washed four loads of laundry, stopping in time to make dinner. I called my parents long-distance and ironed some clothes.
Today, after writing for a few hours early this morning, I took a walk and noticed the crocus flowers pushing through the semi-frozen ground. I entered a magnificent old cathedral, sat down in a back pew and sang quietly. I wrote in my journal, finished a letter to my lonely aunt, and hugged a new friend. After dinner I sat alone and enjoyed the view out my window, browsed through an old book, and played a few favorite hymns on the piano.
“Which day is more valuable?” I wondered. Although I enjoyed today more, I realize my life does not consist solely of one kind of day. No matter what a day brings, it is a gift from God — and a reason to celebrate.
Lord, you made this day
and gave it to me to enjoy.
