A Month of Thanks, Day 29

I was just about to turn off my computer. But, I couldn't do it until I wrote a blog post. I don't know why I felt compelled to write.

Today I am thankful for another day of life. I want to remember that each day is a gift. It is not guaranteed. Here I am, getting ready for bed after yet another day.

How did I live this day? Was I faithful steward of the gift God gave me of this day? I am not always. Sometimes I am partially. And, on very rare occasions I make it through an entire day.

I look forward to tomorrow. Not only because my parents are coming, but also because His mercies are new each morning. He gives me another chance to serve and worship Him.

Good night!

Update: I found this on my flip calendar today when I turned the page:
"To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us- and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a gift of grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him." Thomas Merton
