We have been so programmed to go, go, go that we don’t stop to enjoy the moment, whether it is the weekend or not. There is beauty in everyday, every hour, every minute. There are things happening all the time that are really something special to praise God for, but we easily forget. These are my thoughts right now as I began to think how excited I am to be entering the weekend. There is more to life than the weekend.
Dear Heavenly Father, help us to realize that every day is a gift from you. Each and every day you grant us mercy and grace but we seem to overlook our blessings. Help us to have an appreciative and thankful heart for each day we are alive, regardless of the day of the week. Let us not look forward to Friday, but to each new day that you allow us to wake and live our purpose. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
