"When the baby is crying and the deadlines are pressing and the stress is mounting and the enemy whispers "just get through this crappy day." Look up and shame the enemy back to hell by acknowledging today is a gift.
A gift from a good, good Father. And then look, seek, and dive deeply into what a true gift it is."
I can be so guilty of taking each day for granted, never knowing when it might be my last, or the last for someone in my life. But I don't pay attention to the gift each day is and each moment is with the important people in my life and those who God has my life intersect with.
My mornings should start with, "If I can just make it to 8:00 tonight..." I need to look, seek, and dive deeply like Lysa said above. And you do too.
Before I know it the kids will be grown and their love and need for me will look a lot differently than it does now. The hour I get each day to myself will be come the hour I "get" to spend with them. Funny how life works and perspective is everything.
Today is a miracle and a gift, let's treat it as such!
