This is the day that the LORD hath made! do know what comes after, don't you?

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

It doesn't matter if you got less sleep than you needed last night. It doesn't matter if you (or someone else in the house) is sick -- either temporarily or chronically -- and having a hard time dealing with it. It doesn't matter if someone just dropped a pitcher of orange juice all over the freshly mopped floor.

Okay, that last bit is not something that happened in our house this morning, but it has happened in the past. More than once.

It doesn't even matter if everything is going right, you got up before the alarm sounded, even, and the baby didn't keep you up all night for the first time ever, and breakfast was all ready, in the crockpot and since the table got set last night before bed and the kids know -- and do -- exactly what they need to do between getting out of bed and breakfast, there's really almost no work needed to get from there to here...

No matter what...

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

(Yes, it's easy to rejoice when everything goes right. But it's just as easy to forget about the Lord and His benefits, and cruise along thinking how you've got everything together. Been there. Done that.)

 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. (Phil. 4:4)
