GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Oh, that first day back to work after Christmas; hmpf. Yes, yes, it's rough facing reality again for those who are headed back to the office/grind today. Then again, it's tough for those celebrating Hanukkah and/or Kwanzaa to have to work through the holidays, too. Little more hmpf.
The good news is: Christmas Day is just the beginning. You know, the kickoff at the beginning of the game. The better news is: the game of life on earth is a blessing; every second of all four quarters. The best news is: after the game's over, the real celebration starts ... and it doesn't end. All we need to do is the right stuff; including treating one another well.
So, don't be blue - cheer up, buckaroos! The (tailgate) party's just getting started. The Big Guy's sent us the gift that keeps on giving.
R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just! Light dawns for the just; and gladness, for the upright of heart. Be glad in the LORD, you just, and give thanks to his holy name.
