This is the Day


This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 KJV

We’ve sung it, embroidered it on wall hangings and said it so often that sometimes it loses its freshness. I was so delighted that with all the problems swirling around in our world that God took a moment to remind me and refresh my heart.

Here in Florida we are known by the tourists for two kinds of wildlife: flamingos (which we have yet to see after 3 1/2 years) and alligators – which are rare in these parts. So I was delighted to unexpectedly spot a good sized gator pop his head up for a moment while I passed by our community pond on Monday. Hoping for better light and a closer photo opportunity (but not too close!) I set off on my Sunday morning walk. As I neared the pond I was taken in by the breathtaking clarity of the morning light and the perfect colorful reflections on the water. Yet all the while I was hoping for a peek at a fearsome predator, God had something different and delightful in mind.

It wasn’t the spectacle I expected but it was what God had prepared for me today. Then He reminded me that this is His day and I just might miss what He has in store if I insist on hunting for alligators!
