You have a choice today

-A A +A

You wake up early in the morning, You have responsibilities to fulfill today. Your main job is to choose what kind of day you’re going to have.

Today you can complain because the weather is rainy or you can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today you can feel sad that you don’t have more money or you can be glad that your finances encourage you to plan your purchases wisely and guide you away from waste.

Today you can grumble about your health or you can rejoice that you are alive.

Today you can lament over all that your parents didn’t give you when you were growing up or you can feel grateful that they allowed you to be born.

Today you can cry because roses have thorns or you can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today you can mourn your lack of friends or you can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today you can whine because you have to go to work or you can shout for joy because you have a job to do.

Today you can complain because you have to go to school or eagerly open your mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today you can murmur dejectedly because you have to do housework or you can appreciate that you have a place to call home.

Today you can choose to bless or curse someone.

Today you can choose to serve the Lord or yourself.

Today is ahead of you. What today will be like is up to you. You get to choose what kind of day you will have!
