Wow, I jumped up this morning, spent a moment watching a fiery red and orange sunrise and got right to work on some stuff in the empty house, and forgot all about writing a post! That’s not a great way to end the year, but I have been really productive in my most favorite time of the day- the early morning.
That sort of reminds me of this quote I stumble upon recently
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive-to breathe, to think, to enjoy to love” Marcus Aurelius
Yep, today the sunsets on the year we called 2012, and all of those hopes, dreams, and memories will go down over the horizon. Tomorrow, is a new day, and a new year starts! Yeah!
But really, we should remember that each day is a new start and a new chance to live this one life we have. Tomorrow may be a new year, but today, today is a new day. Let’s us treasure it, and use it for his glory!
15… so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:15-17 New International Version (NIV)
