Recently, a friend’s husband had a small stroke. The speech therapist told him to pronounce loudly and enunciate clearly every morning before getting out of bed “This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!” There is an amazing story about this, which I’m hoping she will share at a meeting on Tuesday. 🙂
It made me think that at the end of the day, we should all say “This was the day that the Lord made. I rejoiced and was glad in it.” Even with all the messes that are made, hardships and trials, I look back at each day and am thankful for each one of them. Even if it was now the happiest of days, there are small blessings in each and every one. After I shared this with my friend, she had said that she has actually been doing that at night too. Lord, “This was a day You made. We rejoiced and were glad in it. And we look forward to tomorrow if You choose to give it to us!”
If you think of it, could you pray for my friend’s husband? Thanks!
I will be praying. And you know what? Growing up, my mom always said those exact words almost every morning to us and it’s still pretty much the first thing that pops in my head every morning.
