Is today just another day?

A question that often comes to mind for me - Is today just another day?

As my life begins to accelerate towards the big four-o, I find myself asking this question more often. I really do not want today to be just another day. I want to make a difference in someone else's life. I want to do something - even if it's just step one - towards making this world a better place to live.

The problem - what I think will make this world better seems to change as often as the seasons.

So, today, I once again wonder - is today just another day? My spiritual life tells me today is a gift from God, my Bible tells me today is another day meant to be lived to its fullest. My heart tells me, God has a perfect plan and His timing is not always (in fact, is rarely) my timing. So, today, my desire is to look for ways to bring joy to someone else - just to make them smile (if only for the moment). And pray that God would work through me to fulfill His dreams for me and for those I come in contact with today.

Hey God... thanks for another day - help me to live it "maxed-out" for You!

I tried this will Jenna when I picked her up today.... "So, Jenna, what did you do for someone else today? How did you help someone else today?" She looked at me and asked.... "Why are you asking me that?" Too funny!
