A New Day

It's Monday in every sense of the word! I was dreading it's arrival, but it came anyway. This was such a great weekend and, if you're a reader in Texas, you know how glorious the weather was yesterday. While getting together with friends last night I realized that we were all dreading Monday, it wasn't just me!! Then I saw the same attitude as I read posts on Facebook - no one was looking forward to this day!

As I rolled my body sore from weekend yardword out of the bed this morning and began looking to the day ahead I decided that I had to make a choice - either I could mourn the passing of the "perfect day" or I could let myself see the beauty and promise in THIS day. It's true, I don't have as much to look forward to today, my time is not my own and I can't be a lounge lizard watching movies and playing with my kids all day. However, God tells us that our mercies our new every morning, He uses our time for His glory when we give it to Him, and instead of lounging around, God wants to give us a few 'divine appointments' in the day so that we can be a blessing and be blessed in return. All in all, I'd say that's alot to look forward to!!

This morning make a choice with me...are you going to dread a week of work and obligations OR are you going to embrace being part of the new things that God is doing all around us?? I choose God...there's no high like the Most High!

Be blessed,
Jennifer
