Today is...


Love is the only gold. ~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Today is... just one more day to love our God with all our heart, all our soul, and all our mind, and love our neighbor as ourselves!

Today is... my 23rd anniversary. (Obviously, we will not be eating out to celebrate.)

Today is... the 34th day of our church's 40-day fast. (Just six more days!)

Today is... the Princess' allowance day.

Today is... the day that my husband and I are finally installing the new front door with the lovely leaded glass window (after it has been leaning against a support in our garage for unknown years).

Today is... the day of the church board meeting so my husband will be gone all morning.

Today is... the day I will probably have do some house cleaning and laundry.

Today is... the day before my husband will be leaving to work in Orlando for a day or two.

Today is... the day I realized I have a rash on my neck, probably from the poison ivy I have been cutting back carefully (perhaps not carefully enough). I rarely get it and when I do it is usually just a small blister here and there—except for my neck for some reason, where it becomes a very red rash.

Today is... the day I need to really practice the song I was preparing to sing for tomorrow's church service, although I am not sure it will be ready for tomorrow right now, and now I have that lovely rash too!

Today is... the day I would just rather spend the entire day in prayer in the peace and quiet of my "private prayer corner" of my bedroom.

Above all this, today is... Your day, my Lord, what would You have me (us) do with it to serve and glorify you?

~ My Lord, thank you for my husband, my daughter, my family, my church, my friends, my very life. Thank you for Your Love that provides all that I will ever need. ~
