Today is the Day

This morning when I awoke I thought of the poem - Just for Today. This is a version of the same poem. I don't know why I thought of this today but maybe I needed it and/or maybe someone in blogland needed to read this.

Today I will live it up

I will live it up today by praying when I awake

I will live it up today by doing a good deed for someone and not getting found out

I will live it up by smiling at the people I meet, knowing that those who do not return the smile need it most

I will live it up today by being the best me there is beliveing that God's will is for me to be me

I will live it up today by excersing my body, mind and spirit, aware that excercise is the key to health

I will live it up today by taking responsibility for just that is mine to be responsible for

I will live it up today by enjoying the gift of today and the miracle of the day, even when I do not understand what the gifts and miracles are

I will live it up today knowing that God is with me always and that I am never alone

I will live it up today because God gave me the power of choice, and I choose to live it up.

by Tuchy Carl Palmieri

Hope everyone has a blessed day.

Such a lovely poem.

Thank you for stopping by my blog
and leaving me such a sweet note, although I have been very brain dead in the blog department lately and have not been posting much. With me, it's either feast of famine :-)
