It’s Been Said

Make it a good day!


I got that at the bottom of an email from my friend SooAnn a couple of weeks ago. I think the email was about setting up pictures for contacts on her Blackberry, I’m not sure. What struck me was that it wasn’t “have a good day” or “hope your day’s good,” it was “(implied ‘you’) make it a good day.” I determine how my day will be based on my actions and reactions. It’s kind of a Carpe Diem kind of thing, and makes you want to march around your prep school’s yard and stand on your desk.

It’s a good reminder.

I’m sure most of you know the story of Job or have, at least, heard of “the patience of Job.” On top of the hardest time he’s ever gone through, he’s receiving really bad advice from his so-called friends. I can just imagine that he’s had just about enough of their idiocy when he says the following:

Doubtless you are the people, and wisdom will die with you!

Job 12:2 (NIV)

It’s one of my favorite insults – not only in the Bible, but just in general. It’s “Ooh, la la, Mr. Smartypants” and “Look at the big brain on Brad!” all wrapped up in one.

It cracks me up every time.
