Saw this on a friend’s Facebook page: “Today I just broke my personal record for the most consecutive days lived!”
Okay, it’s Friday, maybe it’s been a long week, maybe you’re worn out and frazzled and fried and maybe you’ve been knocked around a bit. Maybe things haven’t worked out the way you planned when you started this week.
That’s the way it goes sometimes.
On the other hand . . . You’re still upright, still walking, talking, breathing. That ought to count for something. If today you set a new record for consecutive days lived, smile and say, “Thank you, Lord.”
“Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13).
It’s good be in the land of the living.
We won’t be here forever.
Might as well enjoy our record-breaking day.
