STOP AND THINK – Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century essayist and poet)
Emerson must have been a positive thinker. Most of us probably don’t look at every day that way. We just know that some days aren’t going to be good—a big loan payment is due, a difficult business meeting is at hand, or we’ve argued with a loved one. Wouldn’t it be great, if we could adopt the attitude of the psalmist and rejoice because today is God’s day?
This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)
