To be totally frank, I have no particular reason to be joyful today. I still have the same long to-do list hanging over me, waiting to be done. My house is a chaotic disaster zone as I turn my attentions to other matters that seem more pressing at the moment. And I wonder if I'll ever get past those pressing matters and back to a more normal existence.
Still . . .
This is the day that the Lord has made! Every day is a gift from Him. I can mope, or I can be grateful. I can focus on the unending list and feel the weight of its demands, or I can focus on my Lord and Savior and feel the warmth of His love for me.
Today, I choose to REJOICE!
