Thought du Jour: Today

A quote for the day:
I have never passed this way before...

That quote is written in the front of my Bible. Last year, my Bible teacher was talking about how each day is a new day, and each day you are not quite the same person that you were yesterday, and the place you are walking is not the same as it was yesterday. So every morning, when you get up and start your day in whatever way you do, just take each day as if it was the first day of your life. I know people always say that you should live each day as if it were your last, and that's a good thing too, but you should never lose that innocence you had on the first day of your life, and become hardened and cynical. Look at a sunrise or a sunset, if you aren't a particularly early riser. Take a walk around your neighborhood, and try to notice something new about it, something you hadn't seen there before. Ask questions.

And take the new day as it comes, and make the most of it.

After all,

"I have never passed this way before..."
