Songs on Sunday ~ Prayer of Thanks and Day One ~ 4/26/15

 
I would like to thank each and every one of you that prayed for my gallbladder surgery on Monday!  I now have a prayer of thanks, because everything went very well.  I was in and out of surgery in 45 minutes and home within 4 hours of my arrival time.  It went so fast!  I was amazed. 
 
From what I can tell, I'm healing well.  I'm no longer taking ANY pain medication and just have a little bit of soreness when I get out of bed.  I go back for my follow-up appointment on Wednesday to find out when I can go back to work.  Again, thanks so much for the prayers.
 
Now, on to Songs on Sunday.  This song speaks to me on so many levels.  Are you ready to start Day One of the rest of your life?
 
   
 
Well, I wish I had a short term memory
Wish the only thing my eyes could see
Was the future burning bright right in front of me
But I can't stop looking back

Yeah, I wish I was a perfect picture of
Somebody who's never not good enough
I try to measure up but I mess it up
And I wish I wasn't like that

I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something
Here goes nothin'

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me
That my best days are not behind me
Wherever my yesterday may find me
Well, I don't have to stay there

See my hourglass is upside down
My someday soon is here and now
The clock is tickin'
And I'm so sick and tired of missing out

It's day one
And here comes the sun

Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, I will fix my eyes on You
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
Sun's coming up, the beginning has begun

Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting over, I'm starting over, starting now
I'm starting over
Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting over
Starting over, starting now
I'm starting over
