The Best Day of My Life

As I continue to go through my files in preparation to go on the road for deputation I have found more jewels!  Here is one I found today:

The Best Day of My Life

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever!  There were times when I wondered if I would make it today; but I did!  And because I did I'm going to celebrate!  Today I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far; the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.  I will go through this day with my head held hight, and a happy heart.  I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts:  the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees the flowers, and the birds.  Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice.  Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people.  I'll make someone smile.  I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know.  Today I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down.  I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for them and how much they mean to me.  Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me.  I'l remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and His Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.  Tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside the raise my eyes to the heavens.  I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.  As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow, I will thank my Almighty God for the best day of my life.  And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child, excited with expectation because I know tomorrow is going to be. . .The best day of my life.
