This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)

This is one of the prettiest spots I ever visited. Mild temperatures, inviting water, sweet ocean breezes, and hammocks hung in strategic locations, temping a body to slow down and take it all in. In this idyllic spot, who
could fail to have a good day? Unfortunately most of us don’t have the luxury of spending many days in such lazy beauty. Real life will intrude.

Take a close look at the verse above. Do you see anywhere where it says:
This is the day which the Lord hath made;
And God is going to make good things happen to me today so I can be happy.”
“And God is going to give me the promotion, raise, vacation, relationship,  I want so I can have a good day.”
“God is going to make sure that (insert sports team or individual here) does well today, so I will have a smile on my face.”
“God is going to move me to a piece of beach front property so I’ll have something to rejoice about.”

I could type these examples all day and none of them would be true.
“…we will rejoice…” A choice, regardless of our personal circumstances, the actions of others, failure to get what we think we want, today we will make a conscious choice to rejoice in the special day the Lord made, or not.

Here are some tips on how to do that.

1.  Spend some time with the Father. It’s hard to rejoice in what He has made if we aren’t speaking to him.

2.  Sit down and make a list of five things that you have to be grateful for.

3.    Give yourself to something special today. It doesn’t have to be big or expensive.
4.  Stop somewhere and indulge in your favorite coffee or ice cream.

 5. Call a friend or family member you haven’t seen in a while and tell them you love them.
.      
6. Do something nice for someone else without them knowing about it.

     
7. Sit down for a meal with your family and tell each one why they are special to you.

Repeat after me…TODAY IS SPECIAL.

 Your attitude determines your altitude





Women of Valley View Novel:  PAM, by Sharon Srock



Pam’s divorce broke her heart. The cruelty of her ex-husband broke her spirit. A bottle of sleeping pills almost took her life. Four years later the scars of Alan Archer’s emotional abuse are beginning to fade under the love of her new husband. When Alan returns to Garfield, Pam must learn that buried secrets and carefully cultivated indifference do not equal forgiveness.

Alan Archer has returned to Garfield with a new wife and a terminal heart condition. His mission? To leave a Christian legacy for his children and to gain Pam’s forgiveness for the sins of his past.

Two hearts hang in the balance waiting for the delicate touch of God’s healing hands.
