This is the day.



{I feel like I'm sitting on a carpet square, in pre-school, again. Oh, to be that age, once more.}

This is the day.
This is the day.
That the Lord has made.
That the Lord has made.
I will rejoice, I will rejoice
and be glad in it.
And be glad in it.
This is the day that the Lord has made.
I will rejoice and be glad in it....
This is the day.
This is the day.

That the Lord has made.

And it is His day.  That He made.

Even if you see no redeeming value in it.
Even if you have a frustrating toddler that just won't quit.
Even if you hate your job or your desk or your boss.
Even if you have no money and can't pay your bills.
Even if you are angry at your parents.
Even if you feel alone.
Even if you are hurt because of your past choices.
Even if you don't know who you are or where you are going.
Even if you feel like a failure.
Even if you don't know what to do.
Even if you feel like the injustices all around the world are too much to think about.
Even if you feel swallowed whole.

This is the day.
The Lord made it.
And He made it for you.

I'm sorry if you are hurting inside. I really am. I would love to hear why or maybe just sit with you.
As much as I wish, I simply can't but I think maybe this might help.... Walk out that door, look up and know that God made today and there is something for you to find, in it....

Because this is the day.
Each day is the day.
It's up to us to discover.
