It's a Beautiful Day!
Yesterday wasn't a favorite day. Month-end blues. Mishaps. What have we. 'Ok, it's just a bad day. Not a bad life.' I gave myself a pat.
I had difficulty sleeping. My mom asked if I wanted to sleep next to her to see if that will help me get a good sleep. How shweet! You see I've been sleeping beside her for the first 21 years of my life. (Yes! I am such a baby!) But I opted to sleep in my own bed anyway.
And before I went to sleep I said a prayer, "Lord, please grant me a beautiful day tomorrow."
I woke up to a text message from a friend. I remembered I left her a message lastnight saying that as I was praying for her, I saw a vision of an answered prayer for her and her husband this year. So she replied, "thank you mama. Don't forget to pray for yourself too." That was thoughtful of her. I only prayed for a beautiful day today. I had no clue what to expect.
And true enough! God knows how to make me smile. He knows me through and through. He sent a smile as bright as the sunlight to shine in my gloomy morning. But I know it's not gonna be for long. (Insert Adele's song here: Someone like you.) Funny how one person can make a difference in my day. Well yeah, maybe in an alternative universe or in another lifetime. Haha. Ok enough! Moving on, I realized it was just a teaser. The icing on my cake was actually the sunset that He made for me to marvel at. I didn't expect such a beautiful glorious sunset in this cold winter weather. Now that's what really made today a beautiful day. He truly listens to my heart's whispers! So Lord, what about my other (persistent, fervent, with cherries on top) prayer request? Ahemm... :)
