Are you welcoming this day? Are you anticipating good, enjoying good, and claiming good today? This day is God's day, embracing all creation in the gladness of being. In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 584), Mary Baker Eddy defines day in part as, "The irradiance of Life; light, the spiritual idea of Truth and Love." Thus today is safe in God's keeping, radiant with Life, resplendent in Truth, glorified by Love. In Life's irradiance is no shadow of death, no darkness of doubt, no night of apprehension. Neither regret, uncertainty, nor fear mars Life's clear shining. In the irradiancy of Life everything responds to Life, expresses Life, shows forth the glory of Life, rejoices in Life. The Psalmist sang (Ps. 118: 24), "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

Material sense misinterprets day. With its finite outlook on all things it would divide day into a series of days and then measure the fragments by the hands of a clock and the calculations of a calendar. Thus material sense accumulates many days, some good, some bad, until at length the frail mortal of its own conceiving succumbs to the weight of the fictitious burden. The man of God's creating is not a mortal, nor does he exist in a supposititious realm of time. Nothing concerning man is transitory, fragmentary, or divisible. As the idea of God, the beloved of Love, man dwells secure in the light of present eternity.
