But I will sing of your 2a

1. Today I will spend my waking moments with God.

2. Today I will look for God’s hand in all that comes my way.

3. Today I will treat others the way I wish to be treated.

4. Today I will be careful about what I say.

5. Today I will raise the spirits of someone who is discouraged.

6. Today I will do something nice for someone—secretly.

7. Today I will go the extra mile.

8. Today I will ask God to bless the folks who treat me harshly.

9. Today I will not strike back.

10. Today I will forgive.

I’m so glad you stopped in to visit. If you have a comment, suggestion, or verse to add, I’d love to hear from you. Wishing you a wonderful day, friends. Blessings!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing and linking up!

  2. Such a great list! I sat out back this beautiful morning singing. . .”The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,
    Time to sing your song again.
    Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
    Let me be singing when the evening comes.
    Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,
    Worship His Holy name,
    Sing like never before, O my soul,
    Worship HIs Holy Name.” 🙂

    Have a happy day Renee~

  10. I’ll add one —

    Today, I want to leave my little corner of the world a better place. Of course, if we follow any one of the 10 on your list, it will be, so maybe it’s redundant. Or maybe it’s a summary 🙂 Visiting from Hungry for God . . . Starving for Time and glad I did.

  11. Great tips! Definitely things we should all strive to do, and I agree we’d be a lot happier if we did 🙂
