Sure, there had been parts of days I enjoyed. Maybe a movie, a dinner with a friend, an outing, a date, a speaking event, etc..but a whole day. A whole day that was so awesome that I would want to do it all over again. It made me think. I wasn't sure when I had had one of those days. I then became sad. Sad to think that I am not living each day that I would want to live it over again.
I have had to be honest and say that most of my days are busy with work duties, house work, personal obligations, planning, phone calls, etc.. Sure, I have parts of the day that I love. Parts that I would love to do over (and that is good) but the whole day?So what is my TODAY going to be about? Will I fill it with so much work that its a blurr? Will I fill it with watching TV or movies all day? Will I fill it with laying around even when I am not tried anymore? Will I fill it with eating too much? Spending to much? Complaining too much?
Now, I am not living in the clouds and think I can stop working or cleaning or being responsible. That I don't need to have down time to rest. But it does make you think. I am turning 46 in two weeks. The reality of my age has sunk in. Every day is precious. What do I want my days to be about. A "do-over day" to me really has more to do with my attitude then how much fun stuff I can fill it with. Even in the midst of the work that has to be done, how is my attitude. How do I look at this day the Lord has given me? What is my perspective of the task He has given me? How much of my day do I devote to spend time with the Lord? As I look to each day as being a gift from the Lord, that I have drawn even closer to Him, everyday will hopefully be a do-over day. What about you? Would you like to do-over your day?
