Which brings me to believe, with there being as many people on this Earth as it is, today is all sorts of different days for all sorts of different people. And everyday is a good day for someone.
Today is a good day for me, it is confirmed, my parents are currently thousands of miles above the ground on their journey to the Philippines, with 7 others. The day fills me with excitement.
But I wonder... what does this day fill others with. Maybe somewhere today someone's life is filled with tears as they learn of the loss of a loved one. What about the parent in the US that is wondering where their child is amidst the wreckage left behind by a tornado?
What about the heart that is full of bittersweet emotions as a wife awaits the return of her husband deployed overseas? One day closer to being reunited with her love, but still months away.
What about the heart that is unable to breathe, after being informed that they have only months left on this earth due to a silent deadly disease?
What about the mother somewhere in this world that is giving up her baby for adoption today so that it can have a chance to live?
What about the little boy I held in my arms this morning showing him pictures of a family that loves him and is coming for him?
There are so many hearts in this world and so much pain and happiness, both to be experienced in this world.
In every circumstance, the correct response is always worship.
Today is a good day for me, filled with upcoming happiness. It's easy to be thankful today. It's harder when I'm sitting in a camp full of strangers, and I get the news that another precious little one has gone to be with Jesus. But.. the reaction is the same. I must as a Christian worship Him who brings all things.
Today is a good day!
~ To God Be the Glory!
