992nd -- A Morning Blessing


It is a beautiful day today! Do you agree? I hope so. Depending on when
you are reading this, it may be sunny, raining or snowing outside, but 
that does not change the fact that it's a beautiful day. It's a beautiful
day not because of the season or because of the weather, it is beautiful 
because we are able to see it, enjoy it and get from it the beauty that it
offers. Every day is beautiful and with each new day that we are lucky 
enough to have, we receive with it a new chance and a new opportunity to 
live life to the fullest and recognize how lucky we are to have this day.
Many times we get sidetracked with the busyness of life and we rush 
through our days as if we are in a race and we don't take the time to 
enjoy the blessings that surround us. We shouldn't wait for life to get 
less hectic to start enjoying our days, but rather we should realize that
tomorrow is not promised to us and we shouldn't postpone for tomorrow what
could be had today. Today we can spend time with our family and friends.
Today we can slow down to smell the flowers, to watch the sunset, to stare
up at the stars and appreciate the beauty that each one offers.

So many times we look at the calendar and wonder where the days went. 
We're amazed at how fast years go by and without realizing it then, we see
how much we have missed. We regret not taking the opportunities that we 
had to live life to the full because we were so busy. We must remember to
make time to enjoy the simple things. We are to make a conscious decision
to not repeat the past where we did not take advantage to enjoy the day in
the simplest of ways. Life will always be busy, we will always have 
something that needs to be done, but if we don't stop and look around and
appreciate this day, they will all pass by in a blur and we will be filled
with regrets not because we let one year pass us by, but rather because a
lifetime was spent hurrying and we didn't take time to slow down and smell
the roses. I encourage you to think about how you are spending your 
days. Are you rushing through them? Are they all a blur in your memory?
If so, then you need to reevaluate what's most important and make a 
conscious decision to start enjoying this beautiful day. It is a 
beautiful day. Make the most of it!

I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to start seeing the
beauty that surrounds you and do all that you can to make the most of each
new day that you are lucky enough to have.


I have been given a special morning blessing several times this Summer. It
usually happens on the weekends when I am not awakened by an alarm clock 
beeping in the dark, but instead by the dawn light peeking through my 
window. After the first rays of sunshine pry my eyelids open, I get up, 
put my clothes on, and take my dogs out for their morning walk. It is 
while I am walking my furry friends that I get to see this special morning
blessing. It is the rising sun climbing over the trees and shining down on
the cemetery next to my backyard.

Every time this morning miracle occurs I gaze in awe while my dogs sit 
patiently by my side. The silent grave stones stand solemnly as a 
testament that life on this world is brief. They whisper to me that one 
day I too will no longer be here. They remind me that every moment here is
precious and should be treasured. At the same time the glorious sun 
shining down on those stones gives me a fresh sense of hope for the new 
day ahead. It reminds me that I have at least one more day to shine 
brightly from my own heart and to share the light from deep within me. It
helps me to start that day too with a thankful heart, a prayerful spirit,
and a loving soul.

This wonderful morning blessing feels like a kiss from Heaven. I begin the
day wrapped in light, love, and truth. I pet my dogs, smell the sweet 
Summer air, and watch the last twinkling of the fireflies floating above 
the solitary deer nibbling grass at the far end of the meadow. I go inside
smiling, knowing that God loves me and that I too can share love in this 

This life is full of blessings in the morning, evening, and all throughout
the day. It is up to us to see them, however. It is up to us to welcome 
them into our hearts and souls. It is up to us to be a blessing to 
everyone we meet. Life itself is a blessing from God. Let us always 
rejoice in it and be a part of it ourselves.

By Joseph J. Mazzella

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

1 Timothy 6:10-12 “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which
while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these
things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience,
meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, 
whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before
many witnesses.”

Hebrews 13:5-6 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be 
content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper,
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Psalm 37:16-19 “A little that a righteous man hath is better than the 
riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the
LORD upholdeth the righteous. The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: 
and their inheritance shall be for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the
evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, 
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if 
there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
