Beautiful Days

“This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

Every night before she goes to bed, my six-year-old niece “says her prayers.” Never a prayer goes by when she doesn’t say, “Thank you, Lord, for this pretty day.”

A pretty day, or a beautiful day, is not dependent upon the weather. Or the current circumstances of our life. Every day a beautiful day just is. Because the Lord has made.

Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

My blessing book entry for today: Beautiful days. The kind that are beautiful when I wake up with sunshine in my soul, and the kind that are beautiful when I feel the Lord’s new mercies washing over me, and the kind that are beautiful when my heart is filled with sadness and yet God is in control and has made the day. Beautiful.

What are you doing today to cultivate or share a heart of gratitude? Link here to your blog entry!

    I’ve made this same observation. It can be pouring rain, or 23 degrees, and she still says, “Thank for this pretty day.” 🙂
