The Difference Between Yesterday & Today


Yesterday was "one of those days."

One of the "if one more little thing goes wrong, I'm going to lay on the floor next to my baby and cry" days.

Nothing HUGE happened; there were just several small things that were adding up, adding up, adding up.

I gave in, a little. I moped around for a bit. I sat on my couch with glassy eyes, pondering what I could do to fix all these little issues.

And then God gave me a little perspective. (At Dairy Queen, of all places. While helping Brian study for his final test. )

There are bigger things to spend an entire day moping over.

I have a healthy, beautiful family, and the happiest little boy around.

These little issues, after some prayer and a little bit of elbow grease, will work out.

There are too may things happening in my life that are worth celebrating, so why waste my time worrying?

So today, we're celebrating.

Today I will laugh about the fact that I live in such a small town that DQ is still a cool place to hang out.

Today, my husband completes a super intense year of studying the Bible.

Today, we get to spend the day at the park with Brian's classmates, and a night out (sans baby) to celebrate his graduation.

Today I get to wear a pretty dress and put on some heels (which never happens in perpetually casual Montana) and have a date with my husband!

Today there is a lot worth celebrating.

Today I will remember that God is good in ALL situations and that His death on the cross for me (and for you!) brings life and joy to my soul. Thank you Jesus!
