Every Day A Friday...Even on A Monday

The title comes from the fact that most people live for the weekend.  They just do their best to get through Monday-Thursday, and then they change their attitude and level of happiness on Friday.  I'm only a few pages into Every Day A Friday and I enjoy the simplicity of Osteen's writing, because he isn't trying to impress the reader with big words or even deep theological thoughts.  He is simply bringing out one great point and that is the fact that we all need to start living in the moment.  Matt and I have one thing in common and that is we are always looking to conquer the next big event in life.  And while there is absolutely nothing wrong with setting big goals...we can't let that keep us from enjoying where we are today.  Like many of you, Matt and I both have small children and great spouses, and yet there are way too many times we catch ourselves not focus on them.  Why?  Because we are distracted from the present by the what ifs of the future.  In our minds we are already working on the next big thing, worrying about the next contract, dreaming of another promotion, or simply in another world.

Thought for The Day:  Stop living for the weekend and look around you for the gifts and blessings of today.
