Psalms 118:24

"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalms 118:24

This is cool.  It makes me think of the creation... of God actually making the days for us, and putting us here so that we could learn and grow and have freedom, and discover joy.  So often we look at our lives and think "if only" ... if only we had a zillion dollars, or if only we had a boyfriend or girlfriend, or if only we were healthy, or if only we had a different job or a different boss, or if only we were done with school, or if only we were in some situation that we are not in now.  ... And who knows, all those things might be true, and might bring us happiness long term.  But THIS is the day which the Lord hath made.  And *this* is the day that we need to rejoice and be glad.  Mormon 9:14, remember?  Today, let's try to remember... remember that the Lord blessed us with this day, this opportunity, and find our way to be happy now, in the middle of whatever it is, rather than thinking that "if only" we were somewhere else, on a different day, then we could be happy.  Psh.  We get to choose our emotions, and our perspective.  Let's look around for something good today... and find happiness in the people that *are* here, and the time that we are living right now. :)
