Love Today

Love today.

Winter brings cold days with snow and not a lot of sunshine. Sometimes I find myself singing;

“The sun will come out tomorrow………
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow,
You’re always a day away.” (From the musical Annie.)

I used the drabness of the day as an excuse to think of what tomorrow may bring, and left undone the things needed for today.

Then I changed my song to, “This is the day that the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it,” and I felt the warmth of the SON who is here today and will be tomorrow and forevermore. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”  (Matthew 6:34)

Don’t wait until tomorrow, or for the sun to come out to love your children or your neighbor as yourself. Enjoy and share the new mercies shown to us each day by the Son.

The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. (Numbers 6:25)
