“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” ~~~ Anne of Green Gables
I have always loved “Anne of Green Gables” – the scenery – the story – the life applications – there are so many wonderful things in that story. I’ve read all the books and also LOVED the mini series put out by BBC in the mid 80’s. The soundtrack for this series is also very beautiful and puts me in a mood of happiness and joy. I have the “theme” song from this for piano and often will play it to unwind and reset a mood of mine from a trying or difficult day.
I am with Anne on the above quote. How often have I thought those very words myself. In a world full of stress and interesting people – where my time is demanded in so many different directions and my attention can be pulled in here and there – It is a given that I WILL make many mistakes each day. I probably make more in my head than I actually “act” on – but to me it is the same thing. It is nice to think about waking up in the morning with “no mistakes” at least – yet.
A Woman’s Morning Prayer
Dear Lord, So far today, I am doing all right. I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or self-indulgent. I have not whined, grumbled, cursed, or eaten any chocolate. I have not charged on my credit card. However, I am going to get out of bed in a few minutes, and I will need a lot more help after that. Amen.
I can relate. Oh boy. Can you?
I’m praying for you – that you too will look upon this new day with increased anticipation – as you are further along on your own “journey” – and think of it as a new day – with “no mistakes” in it – yet.
