Okay, so today was a little bit of a challenge for me. I was definitely off of my game and feeling a low-grade level of discontentment rising up in me all day. In short, the joy was just not there. I even struggled a bit with my run (which is normally one of the most joyful parts of my day)!
Still and all, even with my sourpuss baseline, I was able to enjoy some wonderful surprises that God threw at me today: hunting down garage sales with my kiddos, finding and playing at a new park, eating a yummy taco dinner with homemade tortillas and reading the first chapter of Donald Miller's book Blue Like Jazz.
Tomorrow will be better because God promises that "Joy comes in the morning!"
