Feeling Blah Today?

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

Barbara Rainey of Family Life writes:
"If you woke up feeling especially blah this morning, you're in good company. January 24 is now officially "the most depressing day of the year."
Those are the findings of Dr. Cliff Arnall, an English psychologist who specializes in seasonal disorders at the University of Cardiff in Wales. His formula for analyzing such things includes seven variables--the weather, personal debt, monthly salary and even the amount of time since Christmas, among other things--that determine people's feelings of happiness.
He figures January 24 is when credit-card bills start rolling in, reminding us how we got carried away again with our holiday spending. By now many of our New Year's resolutions have fallen by the wayside or at least been riddled with pockets of compromise."

For Christians their joy is not dependent on the calendar or based on the events of the day. Be a contrarian, why not celebrate today? This would be a great day to take your husband/wife out to dinner, or bring home a little surprise, or send them a love note. This is a day that the Lord has made – rejoice and be glad in it.
