U.S. diplomat and former child star, Shirley Temple Black, told a story about her husband, Charles, and his mother. When Charles was a boy he asked his mother what was the happiest moment of her life.
-“This moment, right now”, she answered.
-But… what about all the other happy moments of your life? he said, surprised. What about when you were married?
-“My happiest moment then was then,” she said. ‘My happiest moment now is now. You can only really live in the moment you’re in. So to me, that’s always the happiest moment.”

Today is a key day. Do not let the experiences of the past take away the opportunities to see the beauties of today. Many people live looking to the past and in that despair they lose sight of the beautiful flowers on one side of the road. May this be the happiest day of your life, and remember, only Jesus can give true happiness.
