"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalm 118:24
Ehhhhhh, I know swapping's not allowed, but it's fun to think about anyway. I was only two years and forty-nine weeks old, but I totally remember looking in the newborn area and asking my dad which one we were going to pick. After all, when my little sister was born, it made sense to me that when you put one in, then you should get to pick one out.
Ya know. A swap.
Kinda like a workday. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could trade it in? Ya know, snap your fingers, and a workday gets swapped for a weekend day. Well, at least for a Friday.
But, of course, that's not how it works.
Unless, of course, you're talking about swapping our perspective for God's perspective. Our perspective on a workday often is "Ugh!" God's perspective on a workday is "This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!" (Psalm 118:24)
And that's a swap that God's willing to make with us every time.
Oh, and by the way, my little sister, Cheryl, who was born when I was two years and forty-nine weeks old, was, is, and always will be the best. I wouldn't swap her for anything!
