Joy in the Morning

Statue by Karl Jensen. click here
It’s Monday morning; time to begin a new work week.
Just think—a six whole days waiting to be lived.
Take a deep breath.
Anchor yourself in the now. 
Experience the love, hope, and joy
that are in the present moment,
and decide what you are going to do with today.
 It is yours to spend! Obviously there are many
 “have-to-dos” waiting for you.
But there are also many moments to be lived
 that aren’t scripted for you.
So use those moments to feel the joy,
 fill your faith,
do some good,
and drink in the wisdom of the Spirit.

Like anything else in life, you get what you pay for.
So use your time to buy the best!
Buy joy.

I was feeling kind of frazzled this morning while I was helping the kids get out the door to school. I've been trying to calm down since then. So I appreciated this post. It's helping me to change my perspective. Thanks! :)
