Some days...

Lately there have been some days when it would have been easier to stay in bed rather than face what the day might throw in my direction.

There have been days when I have got out of bed, got ready, made the children's lunches and then thought, instead of facing this new day, I'm going back to bed!

With every sun comes a new day and every new day I have made the better choice and chosen to face the day. I have then got to the end of the day, thankful that I have made it and thankful that this new day brought a smile, a happy moment, the sound of crazy laughter, the sharing of one good thing we have done, a hand to hold and a hug to be shared.

How amazing that even in life's lowest times there are glimpses of SO many blessings. When life hurts and is messy and mucky, God is faithful. He knows how to comfort us, He guides us and places wonderful people in our lives - just at the right moment.
In the chaos - be still and see how God blesses and provides.

With every sun comes a new day - it might not be the brightest day but there will be moments of beauty.

In making the better choice, I have made a better day...

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, 
He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. 
He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, 
I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 
Psalm 23 (New International Version)
