Carpe Diem ~ Seize the Day


Carpe Diem ~ Seize the Day


This is it. 
This day. 
 It's all we have. 
No promise of tomorrow.   
Will you find joy in this day? 
Look for it. 
 It's there. 
Perhaps hiding under the surface. 
Search for it like treasure.

Nehemiah 8:10
"Then he said to them, "Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord.  Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."

~~~~~
May I suggest?

  1. Hi Ms. Laura!

    So true...we never have the promise of tomorrow, so we have to "seize the day"!

    Thank you for linking up to Faithful Friday! :)

    God bless you!
    Joy :)

  2. So very true. We need to make the most of every day because we have no guarantee of tomorrow! And I love that Latin phrase, by the way. I always have.

    Have a great weekend, Laura!

    Thanks again for participating in Faithful Friday!

  5. Laura....A few years ago I changed my life's motto to "Seize the moment." I believe it has definitely made me appreciate today even in its unexpectant events whether tough or joy-filled. Thank you for sharing your post at Monday's Musings.

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
Laura
