"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

THERE'S A SONG IN THE AIR
It is the most beautiful and sunshiny day here
in my part of the country.
I can even see my tulips starting to press
through the ground.
How exciting that SPRING is
beginning to show it's beautiful clothing.
There is something so renewing to the spirit of a person
when spring arrives. God is so wise to have made the seasons.
Just like the seasons, our hearts find renewal after a
life storm when the light of God's new hope
begins to shine through.
Little by little, we begin to notice new and wonderful
things that we hadn't noticed before, all because
God has enriched our souls as He brought
us through that storm.
He gives us a new song to sing.
We have inspiration and a new way of looking at life
that we haven't had before.
"He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be astounded.
They will put their trust in the Lord."
I pray that I will always remember to stop and look at life,
no matter what it brings,
with theeyes of a child,
.... To cherish every moment and the journeys,
...to laugh a lot and have fun with those I love and
those I will meet,
....to allow myself to cry when it's needed,
....to give lots of hugs and kisses,...to
say "I love you" many times a day, .....to notice when someone
needs a hand to hold and be there,
...to remain excited about creating and trying new
things with anticipation,...and to remain thankful
to my Heavenly Father for everything that I am because of His Great love for me.
These two pictures are of my granddaughter a few years ago.
I just had to share who I get my inspiration from in
"looking through my life with the eyes of a child".
How about YOU? What floats your boat?
Remember..... to go out and sing your song loudly this week!
