looking forward

The sun is out! It looks like we are going to have a beautiful weekend. We are well into spring and heading quickly toward summer. Graduations, BBQ's, vacations, camping, summer camps, etc. are just around the corner. The cold, rainy dark days are behind us for awhile and we all look forward to it. Personally, I am looking forward to celebrating all three of my kids graduating from something. I look forward to getting out on my bike more. I look forward to enjoying Annette's BBQ skills. I look forward to some golf outings. I look forward to taking in a couple of Mariners’ games. I look forward to a week in August in the hot sun of Lake Chelan. I look forward to Trinity's first VBS. I look forward to Youth Camp. I look forward to the Convoy of Hope outreach to our county. I look forward to celebrating my Annette's and Abbey's birthdays. WHEW!!!

Actually, I am starting to feel a little exhausted taking in all that I am looking forward to. And everything I just mentioned is great. Imagine the strain on the life of a person who is looking forward, but for whatever reason, is only contemplating difficult things, hard things, sad things, and hurtful things? Now that goes beyond being exhausting; that becomes stifling and a life killer.

I think we should take scripture’s advice, "So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today." Matthew 6:34

We are never promised tomorrow so make today count...enjoy it... celebrate the gift of it... and spread the Joy it was meant to be by spreading HIS WORD so others can do the same thing!!!

Your sure right about that. I found letting The Lord handle tomorrow's dealings he seems to make it work out just fine. Enjoy the moument of time we are living.
