This "pit" just seems to be harder than other times to get out of. That's not to say, that everyday all day I am in it. It just seems that I am either "in it", or very close to the "edge". I know the whole head heart thing, and God is still ALWAYS FAITHFUL, and I just love the times that he shows up unexpectedly. Because those times that grief shows up unexpectedly sure does take all of the air out of my lungs, and sometimes the life out of my heart. But you know....I see how important it is that the JOY of the Lord is our STRENGTH. Cause it just seems that satan is always trying to rob us of our joy...therefore our strength.
I really have to PURPOSE to not let that happen A LOT of times. But I do have so much to be JOYFUL about....and just even blogging this, it has lifted my heart. So let me just list a quick list of my JOYS..
Eternity ~ Thank you so much for that Jesus~
My Family ~ Steve, Brandon, Jordan & Seth
My other family members ~ ALL of you!!!
My Friends ~ The ones in the flesh, the ones I have never met (especially those with a journey like mine)
The moon ~ especially a full one
all of those above things, would be impossible to enjoy without the VERY hard work that my wonderful husband Steve does. I am so appreciative that I get to be a stay at home mom, and work for my brother.
Well, now that I am now some "steps" away from that pit....I am going to go enjoy some of those things....and maybe something "sweet to eat" too!!!
You all go and ENJOY too!!!
