Days like today make me want to go back to when life was simple and carefree. It’s been quite the challenge today as I’m sure you readers have probably experienced at different times in your lives. Perhaps, today?
I ask for favor, God gives me favor, I ask for a calm spirit, God gives it to me, I ask for blessings, God gives me blessings, I don’t ask for challenges because that wouldn’t make sense, now would it? But I get challenges. You have to learn to appreciate the challenges, too.
Challenges do build character but enough already (smiling). I’m having a moment. Just finished a very stressful semester of school and by God’s grace, managed to pull through it in one piece. So this is me venting to you all about my unusually strange day. Most days are like a bunch of perfect ingredients. A dash of kindness, a pinch of understanding, a teaspoon of smiles, a cup of peace, and 2 cups of laughter.
But today was like a cup of confusion, mixed in a pitcher of shaking my head, 2 cups of frowns, and a quart of what is going on with this day (I’m cracking up as I write this because I know i’m not making much sense) . But, if you’ve had those days like I’ve had today, you know what I mean, but that’s just the way life is sometimes.
Days like today just make me look forward to better days to come. I thank God for today because nothing life altering happened so I am humble and grateful, but sometimes simple annoying things can feel like a great big thing if they are repetitive.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.” (American Theologian Reinhold Neibuhr)
I look forward to a better day tomorrow and pray the your day is filled with lots of blessings and favor. Thanks for allowing me to be unusually expressive about my day, as this is a bit out of character for me.
