November 27, Today’s thought – Thank God for Today

What I saw today at 7:00am

Good Morning

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord. Psalm 92:1

My soul, wouldst thou be free from that pain–that remorse of memory?
Thou mayst be so; live in present thanksgiving!
Treasure today the gems that are strewn upon thy path!
The love that is merely retrospective is a very painful thing. I would not have thee wake to the glory of a past only when it is past–desire one of the days of the Son of Man after He has ascended. If thy days of sorrow at any time should cloud thy days of joy, I should like thee to be able to say, “Well, while they lasted, I did appreciate them.”
There are some who want to feel at death that their life has been a vain show.
I would not have it so with thee, O my soul.
I would like when death comes, to feel that I had thoroughly enjoyed life–taken the honey from the flower as God meant me to take it
I should like to know that I had not defrauded myself of my birthright, that I made room for others because I had had my share.
The cup of gladness which my Father has given me shall I not drink it, even unto the dregs!
I shall thank Him for every bird that sings.
I shall praise Him for every flower that blows.
I shall bless Him for every stream that warbles.
I shall love Him for every heart that loves.
I shall see the sparkling of the cup ere it passes to the hand of my brother.
There shall be no remorse of memory when I have thanked God for today.
~~George Matheson, from Leaves for Quiet Hours.

Thank God for your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
