The Gift Of Today


“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Osteen
Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how precious and fragile our time on earth really is. It can be so easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something didn’t go your way, or someone said something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to get our focus off if we let it. But, we have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss out on the beauty that each day has to offer.

I encourage you today; don’t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable, a gift from heaven above. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment we’ve been given so we can live a life pleasing to You.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of today. I choose to focus on the blessing of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal my joy. Keep me close to You always as I submit every area of my heart and mind to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    I am very new to blogging and it’s not at all what I expected, not what I expected but perhaps better than I expected as it gives a fantastic opportunity to connect with likeminded souls. I write a daily blog at, an online retreat for the bruised, the bothered and the bewildered, so I was thrilled to come across your blog which also gives a daily message of hope and inspiration. I shall be a regular visitor and hope you will stop by my site sometime too.

    Any advice for reaching out to others would be gratefully received.

    May we all be peaceful and at ease.

    Have a good day.


    • Hello Corinne. I would like to personally thank you for stopping by and showing my page some love. Just like myself I am new to this blogging thing. I have always had the desire and dream to do so. To let you know a little bit about myself I am a housewife- turned Chef-turned blogger. My goal has always been to desire more but at times I would let the fear set in and let time go by. Well this year I was not letting another day go by. I felt like WHY NOT ME? Who said you had to be of a certain age to fulfill your dream? So with that in my I began to pursue my passion for food & cooking. I am proud to announce that I am halfway finish with my culinary degree. Graduation hopefully next year and I am in the beginning stages of launching this network about “The Rays Of Sunshine”.

      So to start off I setup my different accounts, Email,Facebook,Twitter and Webpage. Once I had them all up and running I simply typed up an email invitation for everyone that was in my address book to check out my site. Family, Friends, Church Members, Husband Co-Workers, Any & Everyone received this invitation. In the email it just basically introduced the site and explained its purpose. I put all the links in the email as well and invited each person to visit the site and for them to spread the news to their family and friends. Its been only a week but the response has been great. I’m elated and I cant wait to see where this all goes.

      Once again thanks for the support and I look forward to seeing your posts as well

      Much Love & Many Blessings, Tameca
