Every Day Is a New Day

Good day, everyone and welcome to Leisure Lane. I hope you are enjoying a wonderful New Day!  Back in mid-January I wrote a little song that came to me as I sat down to breakfast. Well, as you can imagine, breakfast had to wait a bit while I wrote it down. I’d like to share it with you in hopes you, too, can experience a new day any time of the day when we count our blessings. It seems to put things into perspective, giving us a new lease on life. Enjoy the poem/song and your new day, and many blessings to you.

Every Day Is a New Day

Every day is a new day.
Every day is a chance at Life.
Every day is a new day
To put behind you all your worries and strife.

And remember all the blessings that God bestows,
They’re the only things that matter, O heaven knows…
Today is the day, it’s a new day
To begin your Life.

Every day is a new day.
Every day is chance in the now.
Every day is a new day
To acquaint yourself with all of the WOW.

Just remember all the blessings that God bestows,
They’re the only things that matter, O heaven knows…
Today is the day, it’s a new day
To begin your Life.

    Hey Marianne,

    You’ve tapped into the secret of happiness here! Forgetting the past, with its lingering regrets, and foregoing looking to the future, often with worry, we live in the moment! Isn’t this all we truly have?

    I believe that God loves the ordinary, and that He can turn any moment into extraordinary if/when we allow Him into that moment. ” enthousiasmos” is the Greek root for “enthusiasm”, and the original term meant God within. If we want to live life with more enthusiasm, we can let God into each moment, each day. The result can be astonishing!

    Thanks for sharing your song/poem. I’ve got a 12 bar blues going with it, but i’m sure it’s a matter of choice for each of us how it sounds. The message is key!
    Remain inspired, count your blessings and be a blessing!

      Absolutely, Jeff…put any tune to it that speaks to you; as you said, it’s the message that’s key. Thank you for sharing YOUR enthusiasm ☻! I’ll be using that word more often, now that I know what its origin means. I’ve been watching my words for a long time now…certain words and phrases that we think nothing of, but have “death” oriented connotations. Even the word “terrific”…I stopped saying that a long time ago when I figured out it came from the word terror – to be terrified to the max. Yuck! So, counting my blessings it is!! Thank you for visiting today, my friend. Enjoy a glorious (full of God’s glory) day! ♥

    Marianne – – Thank you for sharing your poem/song “Every Day is a New Day.” It is very true and certainly motivational. Do you play any instruments? If you play a piano or guitar something that you can easily make it a song. Other instruments like trumpets, saxs, violins, etc. are very difficult to connect the words with a nice background. Thanks for sharing!

      Tom, thank you for your kind comment. I used to play piano a little bit, but haven’t played in over 40 years. It’s funny because I don’t really like musicals, but the tune this poem/song came out with sounds just like a musical…hahaha. But it’s cheerful and I like to sing it to give my soul a lift. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      Blessings to your every new day. ♥
