Enjoy the Day

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. ~ Psalm 118:24 

I’ve spent too much time worrying about what might happen, what the future holds (or doesn’t hold), and wishing I’d made different decisions in the past.  But happiness lies in enjoying the day as you live it, and today that’s what I’m doing.  Can you say the same?

  1. Beautiful flowers! And yes, I too have squandered so much time and energy worrying or getting upset over things that have already come and gone and things that might never happen at all. Living in the present–not only did Jesus admonish us to do so, but even prominent figures of other faiths (such as the Buddha) realized the wisdom of this. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. I have been like that too in different seasons of life. Thanks for the lovely photo and the verse. I am rejoicing in Him today!!

    joy and blessings to you,

  3. Yes, your words reminded me of the classic “I Love Lucy” scene, Angie, where she and Ethel are trying to package the much too fast chocolate drops on a conveyor belt. When we don’t let go of the past regrets in our lives, then we miss out on today–just as you’ve so eloquently pointed out here. Thanks for that great reminder!

  4. When my family was camping as kids, and it was raining, Mom would always sing, “This is the day that the Lord has made…” To this day, rain makes me think of that song and smile and sing the song again. 🙂 Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Good for you, Jammie Girl! The Romans had a saying: “Carpe diem” or sieze the day. In the end, whether something is under our control or not, what we make of each day is up to us. When God is in the equation, all is well. God bless you.

  6. I love those flowers as well …. so pretty!

    I’m working on recognizing the joy and blessings in my life, right under my nose, instead of rushing around like a crazy woman, trying to control everything!

    Love you!

  7. That’s the whole reason I started my blog! I TRY to find the good and beautiful amid the crazy, unpredictable, lonely, mess of life! The key word there is TRY!! 🙂 Every day is a new chance for me to rejoice and be glad!

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Lovely picture, and I can say the same about myself. I am getting better though. I’ve been overly concerned about many things that God took care of in the end and without my help. LOL
    Blessings,
    Charlotte
