There are some things you can only do on certain days;
With certain materials,
In certain conditions,
For a certain period of time.
These are the things that were not around yesterday, and will likely dissipate before tomorrow. These are the things that make today a unique adventure; a twenty-four hour journey that only happens once.
Our 7 foot snowman.
He has a vicious cape,
and a slimy celery nose.
He was built on the right day, at the right time, in the right place. On that day, we rolled balls of snow until they were fat for building, and then strained our backs to lift his unruly double belly. He became a towering creature in front of our happy eyes. It was an experience!
The snow was perfect. Arnold was meant to be. Good thing we were not stuck inside that day watching TV.
What's my point?
What's in it?
What treasure is there to find?
What adventure is there to take?
What do you think THIS DAY in your life is really for?
Are you going to take time for that?
There's an author to all this you know ... the God of "manna" who makes fresh bread every day. He's never board. We never have to be either. Some days feel plain dull. I get it. But you and I will have less of those if we learn to look for what a day brings. Take it from a snowman who would otherwise not be with us.
Take time for what you care about.
Seize the day.
