Another Opportunity For a Great Day

On the ride in this morning, I was going through my “to do list” for what I want to get accomplished today. And then I was struck by a few  thoughts:

1) Wonder what else everyone else has on their list. That’s a lot of “to doing”. Awesome! The potential compounding effect!

2) It’s springtime! I love the changing of seasons (especially moving from winter into spring!) and the scenery seemed especially beautiful this morning.

3) There is a lot of focus on the challenges our economy is experiencing. But I am so blessed! I have a great family, get to live in the greatest country in the world,  work at a great company with a great team of people, etc, etc. So the thought I had, was what I am doing with all of what God has given me? Man, I don’t want to waste it! And I don’t want to waste today!

(Oh, and btw, I just took the time to write down these thoughts from earlier this morning but I’ve been here long before just now)    🙂

Have a great day (especially with what’s left of it)!

    Chris, sometimes I envy you for having a long drive. Sometimes! Not always! Man, I really like your comment about # 3. We are all so blessed beyond measure and yet we get lost in our blessings because one aspect of those blessings (the economy in this case) is in the tank. God is really so good to us.

    Amazing, you have inspired me to look at my to do list in a very different way. I am not sure I have had many times, that I looked at my to do list so optimistically and cheerfully. Now I must!! I must also add view Yoders Blog to my to do list for my regular dose of inspiration. Thanks again and God Bless.
