Today…

  I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.  I have responsibilities to fulfill 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 from waste.

Today I 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 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 go do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school, or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have 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!  Have a Great Day…Unless You Have Other Plans?
