I See Tree's Of Green

As I stepped outside today I swear I could hear Louie Armstrong in the background singing "What A Wonderful World". It is a glorious 52 degrees and it is supposed to get warmer as the day progresses. After the long, cold, white winter....this day is a welcome blessing!

I wish everyday felt like this. Not just weather wise, but attitude wise. You know, there are some days you get up, you smile and you sing "THIS is the day the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!!!!". Then, there are the other days. The days you wake up and groan "THIS is the day the Lord has made? Well, I'm not gonna be glad about it and you certainly won't see any rejoicing!" :) We all have those days, don't we? Fact is.....THIS is the day the Lord has made! Whether it turns out to be good or not so good in your eyes.

So....rejoice in today. God has made this day for YOU:) He is with you today, tomorrow, and always. There is nothing you cannot achieve today with His help. Be encouraged and take heart for Jesus has overcome the world!

I agree with you about the weather it has made a huge difference in everyone's attitude.

I have to say that since I have really put Jesus first in my life I have been so blessed to have a Joy that cannot be explained.

You're right, you DID write this for me. Things are moving and shaking again in our life and the enemy is TRYING his best to shake things in his own way. "This IS the day, the Lord has made, and I WILL rejoice and be glad in it..." For He knows that plans that He has for us, plans of GOOD and not evil. He will take care of everything in His own incredible way. Amen!

That is so true. Today was the best. Tomorrow will be even better. But praise the Lord that we can go outside and enjoy the sun on our bodies. I had a great day with Jeff and the kids. I can not wait for the ground to dry up and the green to bloom. Great blog, and this is the day that the Lord has made.
