Devotions from Judy’s heart
We so often quote the verse in Ps. 118, “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” 

In today’s devotional I was struck by the last sentence of a prayer, “Help me see my day as Your day.” It has been a practice at our house that on your Birthday it is your day…you don’t have to make the bed, you don’t have to do dishes, you are just special in every way on your day. Well, Al just had his birthday and I tod him I would do whatever he wanted that day and he chose to go to Brainerd for the day. But on the way he saw a big sidewalk sale at Nisswa and he wanted to stop…though I felt it was really for me he stopped and insisted he didn’t need to.  But he had coffee and a book and was happy while I shopped to my heart’s content. I felt much of the day that I was the one benefitting from his special day. I believe the Lord loves when we give our day to Him from start to finish, and I see Him delighting in giving back to us in so many unexpected ways, just as Al did with me. I recall years ago on my birthday, I was given a truck load of clothes delivered to our door…and they were just the size of a friend who was in need as she was beginning a new  job. She came right over and my delight was seeing her delight!  I think that is how the Lord must feel too.
