Each Day is a Gift

"This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it." (Psalm 118:24 NKJV) As we have said before, no one knows what is around the corner. There's a saying that says that yesterday is but a memory and tomorrow only a dream, and all we have is today. This is how we are supposed to live our lives...just for today. And, since we never know what will happen tomorrow each day is a gift from God. Many people with mom's handicap don't live to adulthood and mom has even lived 7 1/2 years longer than even she thought she would. She said it changed her perspective. Mom went from waiting to die to seeing each day as a gift. But, we shouldn't wait for something to happen to see life as a gift, we should see it as God giving us this wonderful gift of a day, filled with surprises, joys, and challenges that stretch us to becoming better. He made this day for us to enjoy and get the most out of it we possibly can. So, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Love, Beau

Living today is something humans need to learn from cats. They don't worry about yesterday or tomorrow. We humans need to learn to let God take care of us today.

What a lovely and true post, Beau. We are glad our mom is pleased with each gift of a day.

We hope you are both doing okay.
