Yesterday Nicolaus discovered the first egg from our own little flock of thirteen hens. His excitement shot through the roof and infected the whole family with giddy happiness. To think of the many thousands of eggs our eyes and hands have touched over this last year makes me dizzy and here this little boy cannot contain his delight over just one. This egg is new; this egg is special. I pray that I remember this excitement when we are in the middle of our hectic season this summer and it seems the chores of the day never end. Let me remember that every day is new, every day is special.
The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.”
