so today i woke up and as i started my morning
... after only a few hours of sleep
i was looking back on all that has been going on these past few months ...
my father passing away
my husband coming home only to leave again
meeting my new niece from Sierra Leone Africa
a good friend announcing that her husband and her are divorcing
my aunt getting news that the cancer currently in her bones is stable
re connecting with an old friend
and the list could go on and on ...
i thought of one of my favorite scriptures
... this is the day the Lord has made let us REJOICE and be glad in it
did you catch that part ... REJOICE.
this is the day the Lord has made let us REJOICE and be glad in it.
you see regardless of what we may be facing ... regardless
of how hard it is or how much maybe we do not understand it
we are to REJOICE.
and honestly ... on certain days that's a tough one.
there are days that i just simply do not feel like rejoicing... days when
i do not want to hear about someones problems... days i long to be having
a conversation with my dad... days i just want to be able to laugh with my husband
days when i simply just want to say ... i m done
and yet there also are the good days...
the days when you see your daughter playing with her new cousin ...
a cousin that only months ago
was close to death and living at an orphanage in Africa
the days when thru technology your kids are able to show their dad...
who is at war in Iraq ... their new shoes over skype
the days when i think of my father and i simply smile without tears
... this is the day the Lord has made , let us REJOICE and be glad in it
the good days...
the bad days ...
HE has made.
p.s back to decor soon. promise.
