Life is Good Today

September 15th, 2011

My sleepy little head was awoken this morning by The Zac Brown Band’s little diddy “Toes in the Water.” I laid there for a few minutes wishing I was on the beach and far away for the ‘normal’ days of life, until I eventually convinced myself that I could not just be singing the song magically travel to the beach.

However, I could not get the song out of my head, and I started wondering why I could not approach today like a day at the beach and forgot about the struggles of raising a teenager, the boundaries at work and the fact that I don’t have a money tree growing in my back yard.  It’s going to be a stretch, but I thought I might give it a try.

So, while I ironed by shirt I penned this adaptation to Zac’s words:

I got my toes in my loafers,

I am stuck on the tele,

Not a worry in the world,

I bought my sweet tea from Shelly

Yeah! That’s good stuff!.  (Amy commented that it maybe have to go on the greatest hits album, I am not sure I she convinced me, but I like it! 🙂 )

Life is good today!  Those little worries mean nothing compared to the promise we live with!  So how about you, post your adaptation of Zac’s song and make today a day at the beach.

9-10 I’m happy from the inside out,
and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed.
You canceled my ticket to hell—
that’s not my destination!

11 Now you’ve got my feet on the life path,
all radiant from the shining of your face.
Ever since you took my hand,
I’m on the right way.  Psalm 16:9-11 The Message (MSG)

(Oh and actually I by my sweet tea from Michelle, but I didn’t want make the verse rhyme with that – that could have been a little negative!)
