Hey Soul Sisters,
Remember what I said yesterday about joy?
It’s easy to be joyful when life is good and not so much when life is hard.
These pictures were taken during a joyful time! The fields were full of winter wheat. The father son time was abundant. Life was good...
Then the combine broke down, life was still good. Then the rain came, life was still good and joyful. The wheat ended up staying in the field. The crop was lost. We still had joy, in the midst of the why. In the midst of not knowing what God had in store for us, there was joy in the house. 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
God opened a new door and we set out on a new adventure. He blessed us with number 4. That sweet little boy reminds me to be joyful. Although one trial had passed us and we survived, a new one arrived shortly. My husband had a heart attack. Not a little one, no one that the doctors refer to as the widow maker. As he healed from the first heart attack and I thought that was over. We made it, no more issues. I was wrong, four years later and an annual trip to the cath lab. This trial isn’t over. 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
Each day is a gift. Each day that we have together is a blessing. I could allow worry steal the joy of the day, but then it robs us of that gift.
Each day we awake we are given a new day. It is a precious gift wrapped in God sized wrapping paper. We can unwrap it, cherish it and have joy. Or we can unwrap it, miss the beauty of the gift and worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow isn’t here yet. Today is. Choose Joy. #thisisforty #cherishthesmallestmoments #momoffour #ilovethislife #homeschoolmom #stayathomemom #emptynestmom #workingmom #daughteroftheking #momofboysandgirls #momoftweenagers #momofcollegestudents #momofteengirls #beautifulchaos #homeschoollife #veteranmom #momofmany #leowifelife #leowife
