Today: Let Your Light Shine Thursday Link Up


I woke up feeling like it was just another day. Another day to get up and do the regular routine: Get ready, go to work, come home, workout, make dinner, go to sleep and repeat. 

But today is so much more than that. It's a new day that I am was blessed with. A new day that my life has been "reset" with new mercies from the Lord. A new day to show new love. A new day to try new things, meet new people. It's a new day to view this world a little differently from the day before. It's a new day to forget about past failures and make way for new opportunity. 

Yes, today is a new day. Today, is a great day. 

I got up, spent early time with the Lord, worked out early, came to work early and connected with a co-worker in India who is saying so- long to Thursday. Today I enjoyed 2 eggs for breakfast instead of a protein shake. Today, I made sure to say I love you to my family before their day started so they knew someone was thinking of them. Today, I am not focused on the things that make me feel down but am choosing to focus on the things that make me feel alive.

I am excited for what the rest of the day will bring. 

Today. Yes today, is a beautiful day.

Lets welcome today with
