Let’s go out and affect this day! We can make the quality of it high–we can make it better, make it glorious, make it filled with love. This is what we are called to do.
We cannot change other people’s reactions, attitudes, and behaviors–but we can affect them. By being positive role models, by being cheerful, by sharing unconditional love.
There is no reason to worry–what will be will be. We are provided for in huge ways. We are going to encounter struggles, but how we deal with them is what is really going to make the difference. We can sit and stew on them and ruin the moment that is right now, we can miss the beauty of the moment of right now and the wondrous things God is currently doing. Or we can rise to the moment and enjoy it in all of its splendor.
We have been given Today. We must make it the best possible we can in gratitude to God for giving it to us.
