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?

Hidden Treasure



  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!


  3. Great verse from Nehemiah, thanks for sharing!

  4. You're welcome, Jes.

  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.

  6. I've always loved that saying and I try to do just that! It's so important that we take time to enjoy each and very day! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Right you are Jann. I'm having a lovely rainy day. I'm going to make some cocoa and read!
