Life Is Gooood!


Do you ever just wake up happy? No rhyme or reason for it, ya just do? Well today was/is that sort of day for me. I had a night of tossing and turning and not feeling great, and so Den came over to pray for me before he left for work and the Lord had tender mercy. Not only do I feel decent today, but I feel happy and content.

You know it's the real deal when you head upstairs to see that the kitchen looks like a tornado ran through it, and that two out of the three kids who have chores aren't going to be here today to help clean up their mess. Not even that spoiled my morning joy.

Morning contentedness is when you wake up to wishing you had a cup of hot steaming coffee, but when debating with yourself about walking back into the crime zone of a kitchen to make a pot your neighbor volunteers a freshly brewed cup of joe in a perfect sized to-go cup. Now that deserves a "Life is Good" poster, right there!

I just feel blessed right now. God has had a lot of mercy on me in the last few weeks, and I have been counting my blessings, literally. I know what it feels like to wake up to a gray world and have a heaviness on your heart and not even be able to make it go away. Only God can give mornings like this morning, and He did. Thank you!
