I thought last year was a tough year. This year takes the cake. I have fought off being depressed many times. I feel like we have been through so much, but I know there are others who has it worse than we do.
Life will kick you down when you’re not looking. I have found myself praying a way out of many emotions and situations I was unable to deal with on my own.
That’s the thing though, if you pray through it, you can get through it. I’m not saying it’s always easy but it can make a difference in how you cope with what life throws at you.
Today, I had to take my daughter’s rabbits to the vet early this morning and go back and pick them up. I also had to get groceries and do errands. I could have had a bad day if I dwelt on the inconvenience of getting out of bed early and going to town. Then also be aggravated for having to stay in town all day because they would not be ready for pick up for 7 hours. Remember, I live 45 mins from town so running home and back across the mountain was not feasible.
I chose to have a great day. I dropped the rabbits off and then I went down to a place called Cumberland Gap and had a nice latte at the best coffee house ever. Then I walked some trails and took pretty decent pictures. Had a nice little talk with Jesus.
It was wonderful! I tried all day getting pictures of squirrels and they were too busy gathering nuts to stop and let me take their picture. At one point I said please God let me get a picture of this squirrel but it scurried off. I said okay, and it wasn’t two minutes later and I got to see and take pictures of three deer.
This was a reminder to me that sometimes you ask God for things and he has something bigger and better for you instead.
I don’t always have a lot of time to do what I want to do, but I do have the time to make the best of the free time I have. I’m sure I’ve wrote about this before somewhere, but every day may not be good but there is something good in every day. We just have to look hard sometimes to find it.
I pray those that are reading this finds the good in today.
Thank you for reading and God Bless
