It's Friday today. Lots of people automatically think: T.G.I.F.--Thank God, It's Friday.
I thank God it's Friday. I thank Him for every day, though, not just this one. People everywhere are coming off a work week; plenty of other people are just hopping from one type of work to another.
Work is a gift to be able to do. While it's hard to be overloaded with it, just being able to move, think, speak, plan, market, teach, build, serve, or save lives is a blessing to do.
I woke up today in a warm home with electricity and running water, and my family sleeping safely. I have sewing work to do today, housework as well.
I'm able to think, move, and speak. I can see, hear, taste, and smell. Those are gifts!
Thank God for every day.
This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. -Psalm 118:24 (Note: this is part of the Hallel, a section of special praise and thanksgiving, that is used during various Jewish holidays. In any case, I use the verse as a reminder that God makes every day.)
