The sweetest thing that you will ever see in the whole wide world is a happy girl, so says a country song. I talked to someone on the phone this week. They told me I sounded so happy. It is nice to be so happy. I have not always been so happy, but today I am so happy. I just quit focusing on my problems and started looking at Jesus. Sure makes a difference.
On the flip side, I tried to write about happiness today. Turns out I am really bad at it. I eventually gave up. What I did write, I cannot share here due to the content of the story. For the most part, it was just bad writing. How does one create tension in a happy story? The heroine is happy and now she is happier? Weird.
I love once a year events. They always help me realize how much I have grown. I had one of those today. It is so nice to be able to have good, clean fun again. I do not recommend addiction to anyone. I think I have told you that before. Man, I love people.
Overall, I just love my life. I am ridiculously blessed.
Oh, and today when I started to not feel like thanking God for certain people when I thought of them, I called up a friend. I planned to tell her to just start telling me how awesome Jesus was, but then she said how great her life was. We had no problem talking about how cool Jesus is and how much He has blessed us. That will pull me out of a sour, ungrateful mood!
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:3-6
