I find myself looking for happy things these days. Its really not that hard to find. Friends getting another child, new jobs, just people full of joy despite circumstances. Its hard sometimes, huh? Finding joy in circumstances. We are told to do it. The Bible is full of amazing stories yet I search for joy on this earth. Its very odd to be worried about things I can not change. It hard to write things that are in my mind that I have yet spoken. But I kind of have to get things out. You can probably figure out why this blog is private.
But here is what I am certain of. God is love. God loves me and KNOWS me. Knows me better than I could ever share with the blog world. That is the most comforting in the world isn't it? I am thankful for His grace and that his mercies are new every morning. I am thankful that we have His word.
I am thankful for wise friends who always tend to give me the greatest encouragement and insight when I am not expecting it. I am thankful for friends who lead by their actions.
I am thankful for authenticity and the journey I am on to get there.
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,
—1 Peter 1:8
