today is a gift

day thirteen
i am thankful for today
it is a gift!

one of my friends on facebook
who i have known since i was in
junior high, posted this status:

On the radio one morning a long time ago, they were interviewing Loretta Lynn and she said something that I never forgot. She said, everyday there's a gift from God and you just need to look for it. So every time I notice something amazing, cool, beautiful or out-of-the ordinary, I think "there's the gift." 

i just love this!
because this is EXACTLY how
i try to live every single day!

each day there are gifts
to be found,
& sometimes the clouds 
get in the way
maybe the fog
is so thick that we cannot
find out way through for a while...
sometimes burdens 
make it hard to see clearly
but, i do know this...
each day is a gift
& i am ever so thankful!

my hope & prayer
is that you too can 
look at today and find a gift!

be blessed and shine your light~

Excellent post!
This is such a gift!
Each day is and we must look for our gifts and unwrap them daily.
I totally agree.
I to try ...
Yet there are days through the fog and clouds it is hard. But just waking and know I serve the King of Kings the Lord of Lords. Is just perfect gift enough.

Good post today. Like you my friend, I always look for God's gift each day. Sometimes it might even be a parking space in a crowded carpark, but to me that is a blessing and a gift.

So true, each day is a gift given to us whenever we wake up breathing. What we do with that gift is up to us. It is all in the attitude and perspective of our hearts.
