This is the Day

This is the day, this is the day, that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made.
I will rejoice, I will rejoice, and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day that the Lord has made
I will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the day, this is the day
That the Lord has made

This is one of Grayson’s very favorite songs. He loves when his beloved Veggie Tales sing it, but especially loves when I sing it to him. Whenever I sing to him, I usually start with this song, and his face just lights up.

Grayson lives in the present, and really does rejoice in the simple pleasures of his life: his music, family, and a few favorite toys that he has loved since he was a baby. When I slow down and pay attention, he teaches me a lot about contentment. He’s not burdened by fears about his future or getting access to new drugs. He simply lives day to day, moment to moment- the faith of a child.

After a hard, depressing weekend, I’m trying to focus on TODAY, and not my fears for the future. Today, I put Cheerios in a bowl for Charlotte, and she dumped them on the floor, but then actually snacked on a few. Such a small, normal thing, but for me, it was kind of huge. I’ve never had a baby eat Cheerios before!

I’m thankful today for songs and sweet little people teaching me to find joy in the small things and not to worry about tomorrow.
