Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day...that's how I began my day after opening the door to let the dog out. The song from Oklahoma just popped into my head and I went down the hall singing it. As an aside, this song is the only thing I liked about the musical.
It was a beautiful morning. There weren't any major things that went wrong. I got ready for church with time to spare and headed out the door marveling at how beautiful it really was. On my way to church, I noticed people going about their lives, doing yard work, running, etc., and I thought to myself, "I guess they're going to miss church today." And then, I thought how glad I was to be going to church. For a minute, I pondered that thought because I must admit there are far too many mornings when I get up and think I don't want to go to church today. I'm only going because I'm supposed to go. And even though I go begrudingly, I usually do get something good from it. I'd like for every Sunday morning to be like this one. Me, happy to be up and headed to church. Me, excited about going to church. Me, excited to see what Pastor Wyman will preach on today.
The whole day has just been great. I've done nothing worthwhile. I ran by Kroger and got a few things to cook. I went to Sams to buy gas because it was $3.42 a gallon. I stopped at Sonic at Happy Hour to get a $.98 coke. Exciting stuff. And, in just a few minutes I'll be headed back to church for the evening message and choir practice afterwards. And, I'm looking forward to it.
Today was a beautiful day. It was another day the Lord made, and for me it was a great day to rejoice in it. I hope you had a great day too.
