This is the day which the LORD hath made!

Psalm 118:24 is one of my favorite Scriptures! "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

So many times we just do not feel like rejoicing on a particular day. I am very blessed that many years ago, a dear friend made me a little framed cross-stitch piece with this verse on it. I chose to hang it in the bathroom because the colors were perfect with the wallpaper. It's only been in the past few years that I recognized God's hand in prompting me to hang it there. This little verse is the first thing I see when I step out of the shower each morning.

Even when I haven't been consciously aware of it, these precious words have prompted me to have an attitude of rejoicing as I start each new day. No, the day ahead may not be filled with our favorite things. Often, we do not have any idea what a particular day may bring. But God does! It is a day that He has made, and He is our all-wise, all-knowing God. We can rejoice in that!


  1. Yay Mom! That looks awesome! Now is that something you found online or something you scanned in, or what? It came out great! Oh, and the post was good, too. :)

    Isn't it so much fun to be able to add pics--really spiffs everything up so much!

  2. Yes, it is something I found online. I'll send you a link. There are lots of neat Scripture graphics on it.

    Glad you liked the post. It's sort of a summary of some thoughts I've had a few times in recent months. I think I forgot to tell you that Dick & Terry brought me back a really neat wall hanging from Amish country (sort of like the one Rita sent you) with that same verse on it. I hung that one in our bedroom -- colors are perfect there, and it needed a plain wall, not busy wallpaper!

    Oh, you're right, it is so much fun to add pics. I had no idea!
