Have you ever had one of those days where everything just seems to go perfect? If you havenít, write me, and I will remember to keep you in my prayers. If you have had one of those perfect days, I imagine it went something like this:
You woke up on time, feeling well rested and ready to tackle whatever you had planned for the day. You notice the shower water is just the perfect temperature, something that rarely is the case. The bar of soap is brand new and its fragrance smells especially satisfying on this particular morning.
You set off about a few daily chores that need to be done, only to discover someone else has graciously put things in order already. A smile crosses your face as you realize you have a little more time for the things you enjoy because someone else has offered unexpected assistance.
As you drive your daily route, you notice the drivers around you are using their turn signals, letting you merge into traffic, and waving thanks as you let them slide into an open space in front of you. Another smile appears on your face as you notice the cloudless blue sky above. You wonder how many others are thinking about how beautiful it looks, this amazing event we so often forget to marvel at.
The day progresses and you continually experience people of character opening doors for you, telling you good morning, good afternoon, and good evening. You hear the words thank you, youíre welcome, and even may God bless you more than you have in quite sometime. You notice people patiently waiting in lines, making conversation without using profanity, and eager to help each other accomplish even the smallest tasks.
You meet all your goals for the day without interruption, without deterrents, and without much effort. Everything goes right and nothing goes wrong. By the time you arrive home and retire for the night, you are completely convinced God assigned an angel to carry you through the day.
These perfect days that come around once in awhile are Godís way of reminding us of how we were meant to live. It is our glimpse of what the Garden of Eden was like before sin infiltrated our existence. It is also an accurate portrayal of what Heaven is like. With Jesus at the helm, our world will be a world based on love and self-discipline on a supernatural level. 2 Peter 13 (NIV) describes our future this way: ďBut in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.Ē
Perfect days donít come around all that often, but I am completely convinced they exist for a specific reason; it is a way for God to remind his children that when we accept His Word and His Son, we will one day have perfect day after perfect day marked on our calendar.
