Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here we are with another new week ahead. A week to make it the best we can. When I open my computer each morning I look forward to reading the meditations for each day. Not only do I get a message that guides or uplifts me during the day but I also have a little fellowship with others all over the world. This is important to me since I live by myself and with the internet I’m not so alone. I have a chance to pray for the circumstances of the others, for their bereavement, struggles of faith, or rejoicing. It’s like we have a wave of prayer going around the world.
More and more I read on line rather than to open a book. When I do read a book it is on my Kindle. Where I used to open up my daily devotional and read in the early morning, now I’m on line in one form or another. I still sip my good coffee like I used to while I read , but even that has changed as now I get a fresh cup every time by using my K cup coffee maker. I can ever get a different flavor with each cup if I want to.
So much has changed but one thing remains true, maybe two, and that is the fact that I need my morning devotional time to start the day off right and I need others in my life.
I think I tend to get to self centered with out the interactions of others. I do have a big family, but for the most part my days are spent alone and I’m so thankful that the internet helps to keep me connected.
It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.
