I read this message this morning and I thought it was important to share.
“We all hear the cliche, "live each day", but how many of us actually do that. How many of us actually wake up and thank God for the new day. There are no guarantees in life and waking up each morning is a gift. Many of us hear the alarm clock go off and actually wish that we could just sleep. That is certainly not an attitude that demonstrates you are thankful for the day ahead of you.
Life is so short. As we age it seems to get shorter. Time flys by, years pass so quickly. But when we are young it appears that time goes by slowly, so we don't appreciate our days. But, oh, as we get older that changes, and we come to realize the words and meaning of "live each day". Think about this quote:
"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
