Oh the excited sound of little voices!
They truly have no care in the world.
Do you know why? They know in most
cases they are protected and cared for
by their parents! No matter what is going
on in the world! They keep going on and
chose to be happy and be themselves!
Why as adults can we not chose that
same happiness? Depending on our Daddy!
Knowing no matter what He is gonna take
care of us!
This afternoon my fb messenger phone rang.
I had to let my daughter answer it for me because
I have laryngitis again!
Insert long sigh here… lol
Christian put the call on speaker and the little
person on the other side talked excitedly
as she told me about her day!
She gave the exciting news of some loose teeth.
How cool it is to play house with your cousin.
I listened with such a happy heart because,
I miss my little people so much!
As I listened I talked to my Daddy about it.
He spoke to my heart and reminded me He is
doing the same for me and all His kiddo's.
We just have to let Him.
We have to silence our own minds enough
that He has more control than the
world could ever!
I have to choose to let Him!
Then He whispered imagine how much
happier you would be if you allowed me to
do this for you every day!
Imagine how you would sound
on the phone with your bestie if we allowed
Him to do that!
How much kinder we would be to those
How much easier we would handle the
new normal because we are
aware of He is in control!
We shouldn't live in fear! We actually
face each day with joy!
Umm let's face it we are human
and that is hard.
The fleshly side of us tends to creep up
and get the upper
hand often before I am even aware.
However I want that no fear of what
today holds attitude.
I was reminded of averse that comes from
"Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is
I truly wonder what would happen if
I prayed that each and every morning
before my feet hit the floor and I can
still have that He's got this attitude before
real life and I collided!
If I choose joy no matter what my perspective
about life would truly change!
I told my Daddy after the call ended.
I wanted to choose that bubbly joy.
I want my attitude to reflect Him.
I want to be happy no matter what comes
Kind of like that kid on Christmas morning
Because I should truly be that Happy
because He gives me
a different gift each day ! I have to choose
to be happy
and excited for whatever is unpackaged.
After all He already
So as I close and I am already thanking
Him joyfully for my
blanket, pillow, and book I have been reading.
Today is a perfect lupus girls choice to snuggle
up and not move!
You know what He knew I needed it! So I am thanking Him for it.
I am thanking Him more for the joyful sweet
6 year old girl
who called my facebook messenger this afternoon!
me of a lesson I have taught many times before.
Joy comes from
the Lord I have to be the one who chooses it.
It's an easy choice to make!
I hope you have an amazing week ahead!
I can't wait to share
some of the amazing recipes using strawberries
this amazing May!
Thank you for sharing part of your day with me today!
Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie
