It really is an eye opener! That over 25,000 times I have woken up with a clean sheet of life to be lived. Some of these days have passed very rapidly; others drag (and I've had a few of those these last weeks!) As I think about that number and marvel at how many days have already passed I realize how I should treat this statistic as I look ahead.
- To regard each day as a gift to keep me grounded with thankfulness to my Creator.
- To see each day as opportunity to grow wiser, building on lessons and experiences from the past.
- To treat each day as valuable because I never know how many more there might be. There is a limit!
