Purpose Magazine: This is the day
 
Purpose needs short, personal true anecdotal stories (350-650 words) and poems/verse (up to 12 lines). These submissions must meet the monthly themes.

Theme: This is the day (Psalm 118:24)
Each day is a gift from God. As the days turn into months and years, we can point to specific days and times that were extraordinary, days and times when we remembered to praise God and rejoice. We also notice times that aren’t as memorable, when life continued in ordinary ways. Consider your days. How do you spend them? When you look back over time, do any particular days stand out to you? Share stories about the gift of your days, the extraordinary and the ordinary, and how you rejoice and are glad in them.
