This is the day, that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it.

I believe one of the best blessings of being human is that we get to choose. We don’t get to choose what happens every moment in our lives, but we do get to choose how we react to the circumstances in our lives. Did you know that the immediate reaction or emotion that happens in our minds and bodies when something happens to us lasts for a very short period of time? After that, it’s the story we start to weave around the moment. The question then is this . . . is the story worth hanging on to or can we choose to rejoice and be glad? Over and over and over until we get very good at giving our stories to God.

Today, listen to the Lord; choose to rejoice, choose to be glad.

Mary McManigle
