June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

The Last First

Today is officially the last first day in 2008 (does that even make sense?). After today, (the first Monday) it’s just a recycle of days and if we allow ourselves the excitement of “firsts” will began to wane and the days will begin to become routine. Don’t let it.

This year let’s be determined to find the good in every day and every situation. Most of us usually enter the New Year with great expectancy and eagerness, however as the days, weeks and months pass and life does not happen the way we planned we sometimes get disappointed. As a result, we simply start wishing that time would go faster so we can get past a certain phase and “begin” again. However, each new day brings its own unique problems and challenges. As much as we may wish for tomorrow there’s no guarantee that tomorrow will be any better unless we decide that we are going to make the best of today.

So for the rest of this year let’s decide to make the most of each day that God allows us to see. Let’s seize the day and rejoice in the God of our salvation. I’m sure we’ll have a better year because of it.

Amen to that, Bernadine. I so agree - God gives us a fresh start every morning - not only on January 1st :) Lets seize the day; rejoice and be glad - this is the day the Lord has made.

Children grow so fast
