Brand New Day.

The picture is deceiving. The day has not started out so well around here. I'm not even going to tell you the one thing after another that has taken place.
Miss E has kept her smile all morning long though and for the record, she's been a big part of the one thing after another.

I am reminded though that today is a brand new day. Even though my day didn't have the best start I think I'm restarting right about now.

I'm also thinking and praying for my friend A, who's delivering her baby boy today. Her third baby but the second one that she'll bring home and I think about how today it's a brand new day for her, for her family and knowing the struggle and heartache she has gone through leading up to today. God has been faithful and today, the sun is shining, the past is in the past and it's a brand new day.

There's this song by Josh Radin that I love called Brand New Day and if you've never listened to it, you should. The lyrics aren't that bad to read either but if you've got three minutes, listen to the song.

The sun is shining. And it's a brand new day. Starting right now.

Some kind of magic
Happens late at night
When the moon smiles down on me
And bathes me in it’s light
I fell asleep beneath you
In the tall blades of grass
When I woke the world was new I never had to ask
It’s a brand new day
The sun is shinning
It’s a brand new day
For the first time
In such a long long time I know I’ll be ok
Most kind of stories
Save the best part for last
Most stories have a hero who finds
You make your past your past
Ya you make your past your past
It’s a brand new day
The sun is shinning
It’s a brand new day
For the first time
In such a long long time I know I’ll be ok
This cycle never ends
Gotta fall in order to mend
And it’s a brand new day
It’s a brand new day
For the first time In such a long long time I know I’ll be ok

"Brand New Day"Josh Radin
