Sometimes things happen and we don’t understand why.
Sometimes curve balls are thrown at us and we can’t help but me mad or confused.
Sometimes, we just need to cry and feel bad for ourselves for a second and then pick up the pieces and move forward.
All of the time, we need to have faith.
I can’t explain why things happen in life, but I’m reminded daily that God is in control.
Today is one of those days I felt like I couldn’t catch a break. That whatever God is doing is plain crazy. But then I opened my devotional.
“Surely God is my salvation; so will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.” -Isaiah 12:2
I feel like this week he’s telling me where I’m supposed to be. To not take this time in my life for granted. To enjoy what he’s given me and stop trying to change it by myself.
I am reminded today to be thankful for the little things as well as the big things.
I’m thankful for no school & getting to watch it snow with my kiddos.
I’m thankful for hot spark and clear mood.
I’m thankful for our home that can always be cleaned, painted and rearranged to help with my anxiety. [I painted the girl’s room yesterday to sooth my soul.]
So, here’s my pitty party. It’s time to drink this spark, put a happy face on & find something else to paint.
Cheers to Friday, which we can all be thankful for!!
