This week has not gone the smoothest for me. It’s been hectic, a bit stressful, and outright overwhelming at times. My little girl has been grumpy, the house is a mess, and I’ve been forgetting things like extra diapers when we went into town and starting the Crockpot in the morning so that my husband can have dinner tonight. Sigh. As I was driving home after an appointment this morning, I felt God ask me what my attitude would be for the rest of today. Would I once again let the circumstances surrounding me dictate my mood, or would I look around me to find something to be thankful for. I chose the later. And once again, the verses above came to mind. It seems like God has been reminding me of them a lot lately. For the things that are stressing me out really are temporary. The dirty laundry will eventually get clean, if not today, then tomorrow. We will find something to eat tonight, even if the Crockpot isn’t done cooking. And my little girl will eventually take a nap. (Which she’s doing right now in fact!). Before I know it, this season of life, which seems so hard at times, will pass. And so, I choose to enjoy the little moments. I choose to enjoy the smiles and giggles of my baby girl. I choose to enjoy watching my husband rock our baby to sleep at night. (He’s so entirely smitten with her, which I love!). I choose to enjoy the winter weather that is coming our way. Because if I don’t choose to enjoy this life I’ve been given, these days would be very long indeed!
What do you choose to enjoy today?
