Molly’s Minute: The Day The Lord Has Made

July 16, 2021

My favorite kind of gift is a handmade gift.

Take my wedding present from my husband, Vaughn. Before our wedding day, Vaughn handmade me a wooden cross that hangs on the wall in our living room.

It’s beautiful—I mean, it lights up and everything. And I would have loved it if he had just purchased it somewhere. But I love it even more, knowing that he spent the time and effort to make it for me.

When something is made just for us, it’s special. It brings a little bit of extra joy.

And this day was made for us.

Psalm 118:24, “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Today is no generic, ordinary day.

God made this day for us. And, what’s more, He filled it with good things—opportunities to experience Him, reflect Him, and grow closer to Him.

Where will you find joy in the handmade gift from God that is today?

The cross hung up in our living room. It’s my favorite gift, ever.
