What a wonderful anniversary day we had yesterday!
Thank you so much everybody for celebrating the Appeal for Purity’s two year anniversary day with me. I savored every moment of it. I read all your nice comments. I appreciate each one of you.
If you live in American don’t forget to “fall back” by dialing your clock back one hour. Daylight saving time ends today; and we gain back our one hour we lost few months ago. Arizona and few other states don’t “fall back.” I’m glad I’m living in Maryland because I love falling back one hour. I mean we are talking about extra 60 minutes here. You can’t beat that!
Anyways, today is Sun-day. But, there is no sun here. I’m very jealous of you if you are seeing any sunlight but the thing is we all are living on the same planet. That means you too will have a turn to have a cloudy day. So, we are kind of equal. But the question is not whether or not we are equal here but whether we choose to enjoy our day regardless of the weather we have. And we can’t enjoy our day unless the source of our joy is God. Did you hear that?
Listen to the man who chose to rejoice in God regardless of his surroundings (including cloudy weather): (BTW, I’m preaching this message to myself this morning)
“Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.” (Habakkuk 3:17-18)
Isn’t that awesome! I think it is.
After all, this day is made by God and given to you and I to enjoy it. (Psalm 118:24)
May His glorious Name be praised forever! ///
