brand new days
“Marilla, isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
– Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables is full of favourite quotes and I can rattle one off after another. This one is a particular favourite, because every tomorrow is a brand new day, a beautiful gift from God.
Today is the eve of a whole new year of tomorrows. It’s one of the things I love about New Year’s Eve. Not that the year finishing was bad or full of mistakes like some of Anne’s days were, but there’s this sense of joy and excitement going into something fresh. We have 365 brand new days. What a beautiful gift!
Thank You Lord for every day of 2015 and all the treasures that are stored up within them. May You guide our steps and we honour You with every moment, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)
