This is the day that the Lord has made and I choose to give thanks.

Today it is the day that Lord has made let us be glad and rejoice in it.

   Today is a Monday, and as I know I have a busy week full of meetings, emails that I have to respond too, Classes I have to teach, unexpected things I need to account for, people I will need to interact with, situations that will make my spongy heart feel like it on it is on overload, meals I will need to make, groceries need to be bought, chores will need to be done, and I have an important test to take on Saturday. It can seem overwhelming for someone like me.

   I often have heard the old saying “This is the day that Lord has made and let us be glad and rejoice in it. And my Anne Shirly side sees this saying as getting up with the sun and going somewhere to watch the sun and celebrate on a mountain top.  However, as much as I like Anne Shirly, rejoicing from a mountain top is not practical for it being a Monday. And I have to go to work today.

   So today I choose to rejoice and instead of complaining. I rejoice. And this is more important than complaining.
