Today's the day

It's such a beautiful, bright day today. It just inspires writing and cleaning and shopping and taking long walks with my baby boy and his dad (some of the world's greatest problems are solved during or after long walks!). It inspires a trip to Mombasa or Malindi or Lamu, or Mfangano Island or Zanzibar or anyplace that's tropical.

It inspires newness and freshness and freshly squeezed orange juice and flower picking (especially hot pink roses:) and attending an arts festival (Kinanda Fest would have done so good to be held today!). Today inspires deep soul searching, to face yourself naked and all, so healing and truth can finally reign.

It inspires bravery, to make the big scary decisions, like quitting a job you hate, or walking out of a dead end relationship, or having a baby, or standing up to someone who frightens you.
Today is a good day to live. Today is a good day to enjoy what God has to offer. Today is a wonderful day to love and be loved.

Psalms 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
