Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
How much time do you spend each day looking forward or backward? If you really get down to it the past is just a brain impulse whether it is positive or negative. It is the same if we are thinking about the future. It has not happened yet. What we have is today. What are you doing in this moment? Are you enjoying it? Are you embracing everything that is around you and making the choice to celebrate where you are right now? Who are the people in your world? How are you loving them today?
As Christ followers we are instruments of peace, light, love and joy. We have a choice daily to shine Jesus in the community or barrow from the future or the past. To find joy each day is to have gratitude and to live vigorously with intention. That is really living!
