It's A Beautiful Day


If I am being honest, things in my personal life lately have been pretty stressful. People I love were having major surgery, friends of mine are hurting, my kiddos were sick, and in the last week, 3 women close to me have either had a baby, are actively having a baby, or are trying to save their pregnancy. I don't know how you deal with stress, but even though I am worlds better at it than I once was, I am not great at it. Others' pain and hardship weigh on me as if it were my own. Lately, I have been floundering under the weight, but in the midst of the hardest day, God sent me a smile in the shape of a young boy singing a song. And now I want to share the words with you because I am well aware that as long as we live in this world and not the next, we will have strife and hardship. This is your reminder that no matter what is going on in your life right now, you are not alone.


Lord, I thank you for sunshine.

Thank you for rain.

Thank you for joy.

Thank you for pain.

It's a beautiful day-ay-ay-ay-ay.

It's a beautiful day-ay-ay-ay-ay.

It's a beautiful day!


I don't want to act too high and mighty 'cause tomorrow I may fall down on my face!


Lord, I thank you for sunshine.

Thank you for rain.

Thank you for joy.

Thank you for pain.

It's a beautiful day-ay-ay-ay-ay.

It's a beautiful day-ay-ay-ay-ay.

It's a beautiful day!


May your day be bright and your reading be epic!
