I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfil
today. I am important.
My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.
Today I can complain because the weather
is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more
money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.
Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give
me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses have thorns
or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest
to discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a
job to do.
TodayI can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits
Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has
provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor
who gets to do the shaping.
What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
