An Extra 24 Hours?

A friend passed this message on to me. I'm not sure of the "original" source, but it made me think. What am I going to do with my extra 24 hours?

"February 29 – What will you do?

Do you sometimes wish there were more than 24 hours in the day?

Well today we get an extra 24 hours – a full, extra day! It only happens every four years and today is the day!

So this morning I asked myself what would I do with this extra 24 hours. I began it with an extra long quiet time with the Lord. I have written some long, overdue letters, I’ve spent a longer time in prayer.

Today I will celebrate being alive. I’ll celebrate being in good health. I’ll celebrate my salvation. Lastly, I’ll tell my Lord how much I love Him.

How will you spend the day? Will you treat it like any other day or will you consider it as a gift?"

This is the day the Lord hath made--rejoice! I know what I'm going to do with my 24 hours--what about you?

Okay, just don't sit there...leap for joy!

It's so easy to take each day we have for granted. Every breath we breathe is from the Lord. Sometimes I forget that in all the hub-bub.

Now, what did I do with my extra day? You know what, nothing that I don't normally do. Isn't that crazy? Well, maybe not, especially since I'm longing to simplify.

Like you said, we've all wished there were more hours in the day, but I believe the key to living each day is inviting God to be a part of it - all of it.

Now, it's off to beddy by for me. Part of that simplicity includes getting a good night's sleep :)

Actually, I spent my day in trouble shooting (can you believe it?). They took my computer away and now I'm just using my left-hand (sort of speak!). Maybe that was a good thing!

I had to work, but I did give it some thought during the day. I heard one person say that is was just another day to work and I replied No it is another day I get to work. It is another day that I can rejoice and thank God for all he has done for me.

I like what you said, "another day I get to work." I'm a personality trainer and I think I can tell you're one to look at the glass half full...Amen!

I blog on Boomer Babes on Wed. Check it out at:; I share about "personality traits." You might find it interesting.
