Why is putting on a pair of  brand new socks one of the best feelings in the world? Maybe it’s just me, but for some reason pulling on a fresh pair of unworn foot-huggers just feels great! So great in fact that, being the type of person I am, I often don’t do it unless it feels like a special day!!

It reminds me of the story of the mother who wouldn’t let anyone use the best crockery because they were saving it in case they had a visit from the queen. But of course, the queen never came and so that crockery never fulfilled its purpose.

But. This week. I broke the mould… I’ve had a new pair of unopened socks sat in my drawer for months and I just decided to go crazy and put them on… Yes, it was just your average day and I went for it… and it was good.

Sometimes we are waiting around for a special day or a specific sign to do something that we should really just get on with… Are there any new socks in the drawer that you should just get on and wear? Are there any dreams or ideas that you have locked away somewhere that you should just hurry up and get on with?

Today is a special day. May you make use of what you have and get those great new socks on!

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24)
