Today…..Psalm 118:24

April 17, 2014 Annette Daily Inspiration

What a lovely day today is. This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it says Psalm 118:24.

It really was a blessing to wake up at 5:30 and get the last two still at home up for school and pack lunches.  I enjoyed sweeping and tidying up the kitchen and living room.  {Did not so much enjoy cleaning chicken poo off the front porch…. crazy chickens…} but I did enjoy being outside in the fresh clean air this morning.  And then, my granddaughter Josie arrived before daughter-in-law Traci had to go teach school {except I don’t think they had children today}.  Anyway, every chore I did this morning {Josie is not in the chore category let me clarify that} sooooo, every chore I did this morning was done so cheerfully.  Why? Because one year ago today instead of packing lunches and washing dishes in my kitchen sink, I was heading off to my first chemo.  Now I did rejoice in that day too…… it was the first day of healing….. but so often with cancer, the cure feels worse at times than the disease.  Learning all the time, is what I am doing.  I am 52, married 30 years this Saturday {yay}. The Lord gently taught me so many lessons over the last year.  Enjoying today is one of them.  Enjoying my chores today and remembering Colossians 3:23. Whatever you do, word at it with all your heart as working for the Lord…. Say a prayer I remember that when one of the guys forgets to take their boots off and clomps mud through the kitchen!!
