Guess What Day It Is

A friend of mine has been teaching his four year old son about the days of the week.  Every day he tells his son what day it is and what day tomorrow will be and then they discuss their plans for the day.  And so it has gone for the last couple of months as he has tried to help his son learn the names of the days of the week.  One Friday morning as they sat together at the breakfast table, he asked the same question he asked every morning, “Do you know what day it is?”  His son smiled, and nodding his head replied, “It’s a Mimi and Poppy day!”  For his son Fridays aren’t just Fridays.  Fridays are always the days he goes to his grandparents’ house.  Fridays are days when Mimi makes chocolate chip pancakes, Poppy takes him to the park and the three of them do all kinds of fun things together.  This wasn’t just Friday…it was a Mimi and Poppy day!

As I thought about the perspective that my friend’s son has on Fridays I thought about the perspective that Christians should have on every day.  What day is it?  It is not just a Monday, Tuesday or a Wednesday or hump day or any other day…no, this is a special day.  The Bible reminds us in Psalm 118:24

 “This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  

What day is it?  It is a special day.  Every day is a special day because it is a day that the Lord has made!  We may not enjoy chocolate chip pancakes every day, we may not go to the park every day, but we do celebrate God’s love, God’s mercy and God’s presence every day!  He promises never to leave us nor forsake us.  He has done great and mighty things and bestowed much grace upon us.  What day is it?  This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!

  1. Every day being important, alleviates the necessity to have a special one
    in order to be thankful, contemplative.
    It is indeed my life that matters so much, for what I do affects
    touches you in ways I may never know.
    My heart is what I most want to give you, and then take you with me
    into the next moment… tomorrow.
    This in itself is reason enough to care very much
    about all the ‘ little things ‘ I do… today.
