Must we dwell in the past, though? OF COURSE NOT! Even if you look back upon fond memories, you shouldn’t allow them to consume you. We must live now in the moment and look forward in great expectation for the next moment whether it be from minute to minute, hour to hour, day to day, etc. I’m sure you get it without me going on and on…
We must be ready and waiting for wonderfully great things to happen! Do not find yourself lost in the things that were or even in those “could-have-beens” (ew).
As for today, it’s a new day–it’s a new year! But think about it—whether it’s 2012 or 2013 or whatever the numbers that you find yourself alive after that–EVERYDAY IS A NEW DAY! Treat it as such and face it with an outlook that will keep you greeting each day that way–IT’S A NEW DAY! It’s a gift! Think about how a child’s face lights up when they get a gift they really wanted–WOW! Let’s face each day like that–EVERYDAY that ends in Y is a NEW DAY!
PRAISE THE LORD!!!
