Choosing to be Joyful

I am choosing to be joyful today.

I have slept 2 full nights in the past 6 weeks due to various things like teething or rapidly growing (leg cramping) children, another personal encounter with stomach flu, not enough binkies in Mady’s crib, etc. I have yet to escape the office for lunch. Yes, it is almost 3pm right now. To take care of the gnawing hole in my stomach because I also missed breakfast – I am eating beef jerky and banana/peanut butter/oatmeal sugar free bites that I found in a ziplock bag in my purse from a previous event this week… and dreaming of a veggie loaded pickles & tuna Subway sandwich.

BUT – I am choosing to be joyful. 

It is amazing how I read something and then it applies directly to my life after that. I read Ecclesiastes chapters 3-5 a few nights ago. Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 specifically talks about being joyful in your toil aka your work, daily life, trials, and triumphs. Must’ve known I’d need that today!

Every day really does present a choice. Today – I choose to be joyful and find the praises and lessons in each hurdle.


And now I need to get back to work!
