I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities fo 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 my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health...or Ican rejoiece 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 cry because roses have thorns...or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends...or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new friendships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work...or I can shout for joy because I have a job to 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 to do housework...or I can feel honored because God 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.
