Making Use of Today

And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count.
It’s the life in your years. Abraham Lincoln
 

If you are reading this, you have been blessed with the gift of this new and glorious day. The question is what are you going to do with this day for it is not a dress rehearsal? Once it is over, it is gone for all eternity. Lincoln’s comment above, rings aloud in my heart and soul everyday. I have awoken to this day for whatever reason God (whatever that means) has and the challenge I face is to use this day for the good I believe it is intended.
 
I know that I must spend five good minutes centering myself to make sure my attitude is aligned with my gratitude for the gift of awakening. I know that I must make time to exercise my body and take care of it nutritionally. I know that I must make time for prayer throughout my day. I know that I must find moments to perform random acts of kindness. I know that I must be honest in all my business dealings. I know that I must listen unconditionally to others so I may hear what they are saying to me. I know that I must laugh at myself and find laughter and humor in my life. 
 
There are many more things that I know I need to do in my life to fulfill the gift I have been given today. Do you know what you need to do today to fulfill the gift you have been given?
 
My prayer for you today is that you make time to make your list of what you must do today to fulfill the gift of your life.
