Enthusiasm for life!
One of the many sources of inspiration I receive is from The Daily Word. I want to share this one with you because I was feeling a little down in the dumps today. My daughter is moving out of state. Instead of thinking about her going, I'll cherish the time we have together.
I am enthusiastic about life!
I love to watch a robin hop around in the fresh spring grass looking for worms, seeds and other delights. I enjoy seeing squirrels bounce excitedly from tree to tree or a young colt frisking in an open field. These shows of natural enthusiasm remind me of life’s simple joys.
Although I may have more concerns than a robin, squirrel or colt, I can still greet each day with enthusiasm and an eagerness to appreciate life in every way. I begin with a quick prayer of gratitude and open the door to a day filled with good.
I look forward to what each day holds, knowing I am not alone, that God and I are one, and that my joy will only increase. I am enthusiastic about the promise of today.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1.
