The best day

Why shouldn't Wednesday March 21, 2007, be the very best day of our lives?  We don't know the potential that can be unleashed over the next 24 hours.  In all of time this day has not yet occurred.  How will we see the Lord in the next day?  Will we see Him in a child?  Will we see Him in his creation, which is slowly awakening from winter's sleep?  Will we find Him waiting for help in someone with a flat tire or in an elderly woman simply struggling to open a heavy door?  Will the Lord bring a friend to mind who is wracked with pain or in the midst of a relationship crisis?  Will there be a heaven-arranged chance to encourage one who has not yet found the Savior or to enjoy the tenderness of a kiss from our spouse? 
When our kids were young there was a fun game called "Where's Waldo" where they'd try to find a goofy guy with glasses and a beanie in a crowded picture.  It was fun to search intently until he was found...you could rest assured he'd be there.
Why don't we try "Where's Jesus" in the next day.  Let's look intently and see if we can find Him in the picture of our day.  We can rest assured He's there.
1 Corinthians 2:9 
       But as it is written: 
      “ Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
      Nor have entered into the heart of man
      The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Matthew 25:37-40 (The Message):  'Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?' Then the King will say, 'I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.'
