This is the Day

Sunset over lake

Psalm 118:24
This is the day that Lord has made; let us rejoice in be glad in it!

I woke up with this verse in my heart and head this morning. What a gift! I ran through about a million scenarios of the good things that can happen today, but of course, the fact is that every day is from God, and my response to it may always be rejoicing, whether it turns out good or bad.

The Message translation seems to put even more emphasis on our response to God's work each day:
This is God's work. 
We rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it!
This is the very day God acted—
let's celebrate and be festive!
So, celebrate and be festive! God authored this day!
Note: For a beautiful picture of the Twelve Apostles rock formation on The Great Ocean Road, check out Peter Lik's photographs, one of which I originally had posted here before I decided to not be illegal. I visited his galleries in every city that I could.

  1. What a joy! Celebration! Thanks.

    I see I have missed some awesome blogs since I last checked your site. The N.O. one was so timely. You make me want to go. And Jenny's fear one was great.

    I appreciate you both.
