Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

A psalm of thanks

I put on my rain gear and headed out the door for my morning walk in the misty rain. I saw a handful of cars but no one out walking or running - not even anyone walking a dog. Still, it was a great morning for walking and I walked 6.2 miles. It's the last day of the month and time to add up those miles that I walked each morning. During November I walked 182.4 miles and the total so far this year is 2067.4.

Of all the things I'm thankful for, knowing God's love is number one on my list!
Psalm 100
A psalm for giving thanks.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness:
Come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us,
And we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
And his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and is love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.

May you have a blessed Sunday and remember God loves you!


  1. So this makes me wonder, if you traveled due west, where you'd be right now! I admire your commitment to walking.

  2. vee - I would be 33 miles outside of Ely, Nevada.
    I probably won't make it across the country unless I up my miles this last month!! :-)

  3. Good Golly, Miss Molly! Your feet were made for walking!

  4. HappyOne - that is enough to walk most of the Appalachian Trail I think. But of course you got to sleep in a bed in between walks! :) That is great. You are one dedicated walking machine!

    Keep walking, and keep happy! Art

  5. Yes walking is great ;)
    Nice psalm.

  6. You sure put me to shame when it comes to walking. I guess I'm going to have to get more serious. Thanks for the psalm.
