I know this helped lift the spirit of atleast one person today, 🙂 , so this is for any of you today who might be loaded down with troubles of your own…
Keep in mind that today, it’s Leap Day. It’s one whole, extra day, in the span of our lives, one more gift of a day, to do with as we please. We can spend that whole, extra sunrise and sunset, fretting, torn in anxiety…..or we can fill it with God, giving him Thanks for 1 More Day. He wouldn’t want us to have the gift of an extra day if He knew it meant we’d be underneath the troubles and worries or worldly burdens. It’s a gift for us to enjoy, to drink in deeply. Praise God?
Friends, don’t let anyone make this day anything less than beautiful.
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious–the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. (Php 4:6-8)
Summing all that up in the words of my little girl, here’s the bottom line,
“Don’t be scared. Jesus is with you.”
They say anything can happen on a leap day. So, we thought, corny family picture….leaping? why not?! My kids will probably never let me get away with this again, might as well shoot it up while we can 🙂
