:::Where I am being reminded to find joy:::
When washing dishes by hand because our dishwasher is still broke. Washing dishes by hand for a family of 7 can at times feel too overwhelming, but the silver lining is that it is a time I can slow down and really have a conversation with Jesus.
When I'm in the car with our teen girl jamming to music that I have sworn off, because that's when she's most her self. Seeing her smile that big makes my heart happy.
When I am desperate for sleep, I pour another cup of coffee and do life.
When we are in the car driving downtown wondering why they couldn't have scheduled these appointments at the children's 15 minutes away, I find joy, in being stuck in that car, when she talks most openly.
When I feel tested I am reminded to find joy in this crazy life because I know Jesus is in work in my life.
When I seriously wonder how I am going to handle the heartbreak that will come in the next 6-12 months, I am reminded I am the lucky one, I got to bring them into our home & gosh if we have not taken full advantage to spoil with our love the best we can.
I find joy in people of the internet when I post something like this picture and people remind me of who God is
How are you doing with your word for 2014?
