This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Today is the day…the final in my Financial Accounting I class.  You know, even if I wasn’t having a final tonight, THIS would still be a day He made!  He makes every day and gives it to us as a gift.  Some days are yucky, others are yummy, some are filled with excitement, others are filled with boredom, some with sadness, others with joy.  Yet, He made them…all of them…and the Psalmist says “we will rejoice and be glad IN it.”
Not just get through it, but rejoice IN it. Not just manage, be be glad IN it.  Do you see the difference?  It was like a light bulb for me today!  Max spells it out here.

Thank you, Lord, for today.  Thank you for all that it holds…the good and the bad.  Thank you for all the blogging friends who have been praying for me that I might recall all that I have studied.  I join with them in asking that too.  I am not asking for an “A”; I am asking, Lord, that you calm my mind, give me the recall that I need tonight for the test and to help me to not just get through today, but to REJOICE IN IT.  Lord, please be with my family, especially my son and my parents.  Lord, I ask that you be with my parents and guide the physicians as they care for them.  Be with my son as he continues to find his way.  Please help him with his job situation.  Thank you for the many, many, many blessings you have given me and my family.  Thank you for the work you are doing in the lives of those I love.

FYI…I changed my work schedule for this week.  I am off today so that I can relax, do a bit more studying and maybe some house cleaning.  Gee…what a novel idea that is.  I feel I haven’t cleaned since this semester started!  That is not completely true…it just feels that way!
