Make Everyday Count



"Our days on earth are like grass, like wildflowers, we bloom and die." Psalm 103:15

This verse is a reminder to make everyday count!

Blessings and prayers,

Andrea

I so agree dear sister. Keeping you in prayer as you make every day count. I'll be in touch.

If we calculated how much time we lost in a day b/c of poor planning and wasted activity, I think we'd all be shocked. Good advice, make every day (and moment) count. wb

I continue to pray for you as the Spirit of the Lord leads me, dear Andrea.

Thanks for posting this verse. It is so relevant to the times we live in!

That's how I've been living my life lately. Like every day COUNTS and I'm not getting ANY YOUNGER! So I'm doing my best to PLAY with my kids, and RUN while I can, and do every activity that I wanna do while I still can!!! =0)

Yes, everyday counts because we only have today, this moment. No guarantees for the next breath.
Thank you for this beautiful reminder.

Thanks for your post, I am putting something together for Friday and that verse fits right in. The Holy Spirit's doing his thing :)

Andrea,

Truer words have never been spoken or written and something we should all do every day. No day should ever be taken for granted for we know not when it will be our last.

Dearest Andrea,

My precious sister and friend. Oh how these words are so very true. My husband and I have been living by them especially since December 2006 when he had open-heart surgery...and now with the deep physical trials going on with him...ABSOLUTELY, MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT, EVERY SECOND, EVERY MINUTE, EVERY HOUR. I agree wholeheartedly with Marsha, life is but a breath away. DON'T EVER TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.

Thank you my sweet and precious friend for these words today and for your loving spirit and kind, loving heart. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement and support to me and my husband on my site. You are in my prayers as well dear one.

Love you so much,
Alleluiabelle

Yes! Making every day count--a good goal!
(Thanks for stopping by my WIP blog today and reading my Amish wedding story--I appreciate you taking the time to do that!)

Thanks for this simple yet true message from God.

Following blogs has really opened my eyes and made me realize this.

I noticed when the sun shined more I got more energy. I think I let winter get me down and I get really lazy.

I've been thinking and praying that when winter comes again I'll still live each day as if it were my last. Need prayer here.

Thanks for reading about my visit with my neighbor yesterday. It is a journey & I was once where he is.
Praise God for His mercy and forgiveness.
C'ya,
Nannette

But you know, wild flowers are also beautiful...so, though their life is brief, it is one that bestows lovliness, making a stroll through an ordinary meadow a visual delight!

You posted this on my mom's 81st birthday! How appropriate!
