Some mornings when I wake up I feel a little worried. There's always something to be concerned over. I stop myself by saying, "This is the day the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!" This changes my perspective. When I drop Johnny off at school I'll sometimes say, "This is the only (fill in date here) you'll ever have - make it great!"
Every day is a gift - each brings opportunities. I feel bad when I fritter away the moments with worrying about things that will probably never happen when just outside my window birds are singing and the sky is blue.

As far as I know this is our only shot at earth life - it's so exciting! I love today!!
