I Will Do It Today!

Chimin' words huh? I feel like I've said that so many times. I have so many great plans and POOF, the day slips away and my great ideas, and tender gestures will have to wait until tomorrow. I am then reminded however that we may not have tomorrow, as I remember my Mom. I also think about how life can, in an instant, be taken from you. I read about Steven Curtis Chapmans 5 year old baby hit by their older son in his SUV. Heartbreaking!
Life is too short, so this will be too, because:
Today I am going to go get the rabbit some food!
Today I am going to make a list for dinners for my week.
Today I will actually have dinner prepared for my family.
Today I will get some schoolwork done with the kids.
Today I will tell my kids and husband how very much I treasure them.
Today I will remember all the blessings my Heavenly Father has given me.
Today I will lift up a friend in prayer.
Today I will do as the Lord leads...even when I feel like I've failed at "today" I know if my day was given to Him, that day isn't a failure or loss, it is exactly the day He had planned for me.

Good luck on your day, and may it be blessed...T

I am so sad for the Chapman family.

I am sure they will emerge from this a family...but I can imagine how heartbroken they must be.

And the poor brother...what guilt and shame he will live with and how he will have to turn everything over to God again and again.

Oh, so sad.
