God's gift to me
Today sucs. It's just been one of those days. Haven't had one in awhile. Lots of obstacles at work. Lots of stuff goin on in my head personally. And then just those little annoying things where everything is going wrong...I spill or break everything I touch. I can't get anything to work. My daughter is in a bad mood...just one of those days. I want to be on an island alone, away from everyone and everything. But it doesn't work that way. So I just endure it, hoping tomorrow will be better........and then I look up from the couch tonight and here comes my girl, dressed like Cinderella, asking me to help her button her dress. Then she sits in my lap and we watch a Barbie movie and make fun of the dancing dogs. And that, my friends, is God's gentle reminder to me that I'm always goin to have those days on earth, I should long for Heaven ('our citizenship is in Heaven'), but also because of His kindness and grace, He has given me a gift (called KJ) that can make me smile everyday, no matter what is going on in my life. She never fails to make me happy, make me laugh, and give me hope even in my worst day, and my worst moods. He didn't have to bring her to me but He did. And that's what makes Him so amazing.
