Today had the opportunity to be ruined by many circumstances. But I have decided to pass up the opportunity to have a horrible day.
Here’s what happened…
Yesterday, after church, I left my headlights on. It drained my battery.
I got a ride to and from prayer. And jumper cables.
I got to see an old friend. Weird. Random. Neat.
I was late to work, trying to find someone to jump my car.
Whilst standing in the rain with jumper cables, I noticed that I was standing on the home of millions of fire ants.
The rain… If I didn’t love rain, I would be sad right now about my soggy shoes. (still soggy shoes)
Starbucks, smiles, and a nice warm hoodie = just the beginning of a day that could have gone all wrong.
Today, I will take part in joy. I will maintain happy, pure thoughts. I will not give place to anger. I will rejoice instead of scream and sob. I will remember that I am an overcomer. (still)
Above only, and not beneath…
