Day 11 of what? What has happened or is going to happen? Are we building up to something or counting down to something? Maybe it is sobriety. Maybe it is chemo. Maybe it is a vacation. Maybe its the birth of a child or the length of time since that child was lost. We are always looking forward or backward to something. We could have day 1 every day. This is the only today we will have – the rest are yesterday or tomorrow. Unchangeable and unknowable. Make the most of today. Choose to be happy, choose to forgive, choose to be a smile in a sad place or a shoulder in a dark place, or a hug in a hurt place. You can be Day 1 for someone who is on day 11 or 1000 of no hope. Be God’s hands and feet today, day 1.
