Happy Day!

O, happy day
Jesus lives
Therefore I say
…O, happy day
He’s my Savior
He’s the way.

My love for Him
Keeps on growing,
His love for me
Is overflowing;
Such joy I know
Can’t hold it in,
He holds me close
I belong to HIm.

O, happy day!

What a day is this! What a day every day is…because Jesus lives. He is alive and is always available-night and day; hour by hour, minute by minute. He brings joy because He is joy! Oh my, this is a joyous AND happy day:)

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. Psalm 4:7

Old And New!

There is nothing new under the sun, but I was thinking…there is a lot of “old” under the sun. And old isn’t bad although new is good, too. Without old, there wouldn’t be experience and without experience there wouldn’t be wisdom and without wisdom new might not be so good!

“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” isn’t always true. And sometimes a new dog should learn a few old tricks!

I think things should continue as they’ve always been – a mix of old and new. I mean, I enjoy my eclectic decorating theme; a blending of family antiques and a new little side table I recently purchased at TJMAXX. I love my new walking shoes to go with the old clothes I wear when exercising. These days I like the old news better than the new news! But when it comes to what works the best all around, the answer can be found in a very old book that works well in our new times.

And that would be the Holy Bible.

Hmm…that’s where “there is nothing new under the sun” comes from.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 “That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.”

I’m not sure where “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” comes from, but my old Grandmother said it a lot and so did my older, but newer parents:)
