Greet the Day with Love

I will greet this day with love in my heart.
And how will I do this?
Henceforth I will look on all things with love
and I will be born again.
I will love the sun for it warms my bones;
Yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.
I will love the light for it shows me the way;
Yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.
I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart;
Yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
Yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
Og Mandino

Be very careful, then, how you live -
Not as unwise but as wise,
Making the most of every opportunity,.
Ephesians 5:15, 16 NIV

  3. Beautiful!

    Today was one of the first days I could open windows and let the breeze air out everything (even if it was only in the 60s).

    The sunshine, warmth, and the budding of the trees and bushes are all coming together to make me feel refreshed.

    It has been a long winter. I don't remember the last time so many people were glad to see the winter end.
