A new day, a new chance

“O, with what freshness, what solemnity and beauty, is each new day born; as if to say to insensate man, “Behold! thou hast one more chance! Strive for immortal glory!”
― Harriet Beecher Stowe

Each new day brings nothing but new possibilities. The woesome weariness of yesterday has faded, the looming activities of tomorrow are still fuzzy; the only sure thing is now, today, this moment. Please make the most of it. We are all promised nothing more but this moment, no guarantees for a tomorrow…
Be willing to go out on a limb, take a risk—as long as your motives are true and pure. Be bold, think strong and solid. Go with confidence. This is your new day to your new week, make it what you wish…

    This post brought to mind Lamentations 3:22-23: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

    We are certainly blessed that each morning brings us new mercies. Thank you.

    • Hi Lynda–the verse brought to mind one of my favorite Christian singers, Nichole Nordman–her song form the Woven and Spun album (an album which has been a soothing balm to my soul) Mercies New…”your mercies are new every morning…” Here is a youtube link to the song–http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyRBER6RLlg hope it works—if not simply google….
      Blessing to you—julie
