Today is National Jelly Filled Doughnut Day. It is the anniversary of the patent of the vacuum cleaner and the building of the first indoor swimming pool. It is the second day of Headache Awareness Week. It is the birthday of Barbara Bush, Johnny Depp, Francis Crick, and Frank Lloyd Wright. It is part of National Superman Week. It is Best Friends Day. It is the day that Andrew Jackson and Mohammed died. In 2007, the space shuttle Atlantis began its mission, and in 1998 Nippon announced that painting eyeballs on jets decreased bird collisions by 20%. The US and Saudi Arabia signed a military-economic contract on June 8, 1974. It is the anniversary of Bermuda’s constitution and the day that Siam changed its name to Thailand. Walt Disney graduated this day, and the element neptunium was discovered. In 452, Italy was invaded by Attila the Hun.
Why am I telling you this? Most likely, you couldn’t care less about Headache awareness week, you haven’t the faintest idea who Francis Crick is, and you never see eyeballs painted on jets. So what’s the point?
The point is, today is a very special day because of many people and events. But the biggest reason that today is import is because today is TODAY. Today is the only day you can use to do anything. Today is the only day you can make a difference. Yesterday is only a memory, and Tomorrow never comes. I challenge you to take Today and do something that honors God. Do something to make someone smile. Use your Today well!
This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
