It's Living in Truth Day

The first day of a new year 
always seems special to me, 
but 1-1-'11 is especially significant 
because of all those ones! 
To me it is symbolic of Living in Truth 
because Living in Truth is all about living 
in the present moment, 
starting over at 1 each moment 
and not letting the past dictate the future. 
It is about Living in the now, after all 
the present moment is the only moment 
you have any control over. 
But too often we fill our present moment with 
regrets about the past 
or fear about the future 
and by so doing we miss out on 
all the joy and possibility 
that is available in the present moment.

So 1-1-'11 serves to remind us all that this new year,
this new day, is a beginning. 
It is a symbol of hope. 
It is symbolic of burying the old 
and having a clean slate to begin anew. 
No matter what has happened in the past, 
today is the beginning of new life 
and new possibility. 
Today everything starts over at 1. 
Today is full of love, joy, hope, and rejoicing. 
Make sure you Anchor yourself in today 
and feel all the hope it contains!

Don't know who this is from, but ...
"Repentance takes care of the past. Heavenly Father takes care of the future. All you have to take care of is 'now'." Imagine that,lol...all I have to do is choose wisely how to spend my time right now, how to be obedient and Christlike right now! I love this!
