Hey friends, how are you today? Did you just say ‘fine’? But is that the truth though? How are you today? Remember today matters. I have said before, I have the tendency to live in yesterday’s memories or tomorrow’s promises. But ‘sufficient for today’ we have been told, we have been given the exact amount of grace and the exact amount of mercy to stand firm when the exact amount of troubles come our way.
Because the God we serve shows no partiality among us, He supplies each of us with all we need to be strengthened to carry our cross. Therefore, we can find pleasure in today. Today, the skies are blue, the sun is out, and the trees welcome the breeze as it ruffles its leaves. Today, we chose to outshine the birds as we lift our voices in praise to our God. We choose to outdo the squirrels as we go about our ‘Father’s business’.
Guess what? Today is my special man’s birthday. I have celebrated more birthday with this sweetheart of mine, than he did on his own. Surely the Lord blessed me when He sent this man my way. Of course, for the other 363, he is reminded that I am his blessing. But today matters. Today, we celebrate him. And Lord, I do thank You for the blessing of this man. You have blessed with a hard working, intelligent, street-smart man. He is a great dad and the best husband (even though I’ve had just the one, I still choose him). He goes out of his way to make me happy. Remember that time he built my closet? Good times! My life is richer because of him. I am stronger, happier because of him. And best of all.. he absolutely loves the Lord. I pray that my girls find a man just as wonderful.
Happy birthday, my sweetheart (because he reads all my posts). Love you, Benny. How are you? today?
