This may very well be the best day of my life. It has been a really, really pleasant day. I must be an introvert since I say that while having the entire day alone except a trip to the grocery store. On the trip to the grocery store, I found a penny. I was going to tell you something else, but I decided I don’t want you to know the other thing. It makes me feel too silly. So now I have the lyrics to a country song going through my head, “this could be the best day of my life.” The good part is there is always tomorrow that can be even better.

I am thinking about writing August’s “monthly theology” tonight. I had been writing about the Beatitudes for so long, that it feels super good to write about James. I have been waiting to do so for what seems like a really long time. I am a little nervous about the content of the next article though.

My brain did amazing today. I am proud of my brain. I have begun to think of my brain like any muscle in my body. It simply needs to be strengthened and taught what to do. It is really cool to learn how it is actually possible to do this. I am so incredibly happy right now. My joy isn’t deep, deep down inside of me. I mean that is where it might be bubbling up from, I don’t know; but it is all over the surface of me too. It can’t be too deep inside me though because I am pretty skinny.

So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9
