But instead, I know that God is good, and there are good gifts in each day. So far I have found a six-word phrase of encouragement for each day of February -- all from reading my Message Bible. I'd like to share them with you, along with some photos I took today of a grocery store bouquet of flowers.
February 1: Every God direction is road-tested. (from Psalm 18:30)
February 2: Keep your eyes open for God. (from Psalm 105:4)
February 3: Savor the gift of this day. (from 2 Corinthians 4:15)
So now it's a challenge to see if I can find a six word phrase to bring encouragement every day of this cold and gloomy month. I love that they are short enough for me to remember all day long!
And just for fun, I create a "wild and wacky" calendar for our department at the library each month. The calendar is hung on the wall, and a copy goes on our web page. Some of the days definitely give something to smile about.
