Last night, as I often do before drifting off to sleep, I was reflecting on my day, thinking about my goals, and saying my prayers. One of my goals has been to start a new blog, but I have been uncertain about what I want my focus to be. I want my blog to be different, profound, and one that will keep readers coming back! You see previously, I blogged random thoughts about my family and other adventures but it was so random and sporadic that I gave it up well before my last post in 2014. Then, I had a blog as an educator that was tied to the district I worked for, as well as my district Google account, so when I left that job in June I also left that blog behind.
Circling back, as I was drifting off to sleep last night my favorite scripture, Psalm 118:24, came to mind and I knew my blog had to connect to this verse. For these are the words I recite to myself when I need to rechannel my thoughts and attitude when having a bad day. These are the words I think of when something big lies ahead for my family. It is this verse I proclaim with joy when celebrating, and it is His word that reminds me that no matter what the day holds I will REJOICE and be GLAD that He has given me this day. So I hope you will join me on my new blogging adventure and I challenge you too to seek out the good in each and every day. Some days we may have to search harder than others to find the good in our day, but I know it’s there so let us rejoice in knowing that This Is the Day, everyday!
