Carpe-ing that Diem!
Look at this beautiful, wonderful day that the Lord has blessed us with,
Isn’t it amazing?
How the sun knows when to rise, and how the birds know to sing in the morning, and how the sky becomes a kaleidoscope of artist’s paints… purples, pinks and blues… all vibrantly mixed to create the dawn?
Each day is a gift, and the dawn is the package it comes in. He wants us to enjoy our present to the fullest (don’t bother with keeping the wrapping paper, either, lol) and we should accept this gift of His to enjoy with all our Hearts.
Because it is truly a shame to just go through life living from motion-to-motion or notion-to-notion, I mean, where’s the fun in that?
Jesus didn’t die so we could just live; He died so we could thrive!
So today, don’t say “no” to anything that you want to do, but grab every opportunity that comes your way! It’s an art ~ like the sunrise ~ to seize the moment, every moment, no matter what, and we should all practice that art more often.
‘Cause all we have is this second,
this instant in time,
and each breath we take,
each step we make,
is another one closer to Him,
so we really should Carpe Diem!
