“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”
– Proverbs 4:18
In today’s busy world, days can overflow with tasks, chores, and activities that must be accomplished. A significant piece of wisdom I learned from my grandpa Schuller was, “Don’t get through the day; get from the day.” He meant that each day contains interesting people, opportunities to behold, beauty, and unique experiences. Sometimes, a lazy day is needed, but don’t waste too many days sleeping in, watching hours of television, or overdosing on social media. Don’t bypass a day not committing time to become who you want to be.
At my grandpa Schuller’s house, the kitchen was the center of activity. You always entered and exited the house through the kitchen. Whenever I left the house, I’d always make the same mistake. I would say, “Bye, grandpa, have a great day.” And he would say, “No!” And I’d freeze like a deer in the headlights. He turned and said, “Make it a great day.” And I said, “Alright, grandpa, I will. I’ll make it a great day.” We have the power to craft the kind of day we want. Every day has gifts made available to make you a more Godly, awesome, powerful, interesting, and attractive person.
Friend, when you go to bed, rest your eyes, breathe deeply, and pray. Ask the Lord to rewind your day and show you everything that happened. Focus on the people you met, the things you learned, and both the positives and negatives of the day. By doing this, you will be able to get more out of your day. The next day, you will carry over what you learned the day before. You will be encouraged to “Make every day a great day!”
Thank you Father for the ability to make every day a great day. Help me not to bypass any gifts you have given me.

People waste too much of their time being on their computers ,I phones,I pads linking up with Snapchat, TikTok.Instagram.Twitter.And not really focusing on what is more important, and that is being together as a family.Eating dinner at the table. taking walks around their neighborhood.playing board games.reading all kinds of different books.Playing musical instruments, and having sing-alongs.Gazing up at the sky ,and
seeing the moon ,stars.Going on nature walks, and looking at flowers, birds ,and all other different creatures.If more people were doing that,There will be less chances of developing heart disease cancer.type 2 diabetes.and high blood pressure.Having an active lifestyle is very important.To all at Shepherd’s Grove,I send love and peace.To the Schuller family.
