This message was shared with me today and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
Today, April 13, 2010, is a day unlike any other!
On this day, millions of babies will be born, and people will be rejoicing. Today, millions of people will die, and those around them will feel the pain, loss and grief. Today is someone’s birthday. Today is a special anniversary for many, or it’s a painful anniversary for some. Today will be the day that someone finally gets the news they’ve been anxiously awaiting. Today may be the day when unexpected news may come for some.
Today, some will be introduced, for the first time, to the love of their life or to someone who will become their best friend. Today, there will be great victories and heartbreaking losses. Today, decisions will be made which will determine someone’s fate. Today is a very big day!
You play a part in the drama, called Today. While some will go through Today with a mundane attitude, numb to life, deaf to the symphony that is playing, you can choose to embrace Today. You can breathe in the air that gives life, drink in Today with a thirst for adventure, and thank God that you got to be a part of Today.
You can rejoice with all of those who are celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and victories. You can love those who need comfort, counsel or encouragement. You can open your eyes to every person you meet today, and consider them divine appointments.
Perhaps a chance meeting that happens Today will have ever-lasting implications. Don’t take Today lightly. This is a big day! Open your heart, look around, listen intently, smell deeply, reach out.
This is your day! God created this day just for you, so spend it in thankfulness to Him!
“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Till the next post, Safe Journeys!
