As I was tucking Eva in to bed, she looked up and said, “Tomorrow is going to be another big day.”
Her sheer enthusiasm and determined hope struck me.
“Yes, it is Eva,” I replied. “It absolutely is.”
But while I had no immediate recollection of exactly what made today “big,” nor was I aware of anything significant we had announced we were doing tomorrow, I knew I could agree with her.
Because she would make it a “big day.”
And as I shut off the light and slipped out of her room, I realized that’s exactly how God intends us to look at each tomorrow.
It’s going to be big.
And he designed it for living. Yet, so often our days aren’t “big days.” They’re flat, repetitive, predictable, and stale.
God’s fault? Our spouse’s fault? Our boss’? Our chosen (or unchosen) line of work?
Because we failed to catch something that a 6-year-old did. And maybe we have to act like we’re six to rediscover.
Life is a gift. Only the grateful make best use of it, and find everything wondrous.
Because the grateful can never be disappointed. ch:
