Happy Day

*I know I haven't updated the gratitude challenge in a week and I'll explain more on that tomorrow, but for now, know that just because I haven't updated it does not mean I'm not grateful and everyday giving thanks for my blessings!*

Okay, so have you ever had one of those mornings where it just stinks? You wake up late due to nothing but your own fault, you're freezing cold in the shower, and you don't have enough time to blow dry your hair? That was only part of my morning. When I got out of the shower and finally warmed up I quickly picked out what I was going to wear to work this morning and was so excited about it. I was going to wear my brand new pink tights with a black skirt, white shirt and pink cardigan. So I start getting dressed and I'm pulling up the tights and I get them all the way up but I wanted to pull them up just a little more over my butt. And for those that might not know I do not have a small bottom. It's not big as in wide, it's large as in it sticks out the back of my body a lot. Anyway... I'm only telling you that so you can understand this... As I'm pulling up the tights over my butt I hear riiiiip. I look down at my butt and sure enough there's a HUGE tear in the tights. I was SO upset. I was really, really excited to wear those tights today. So instead I put on my black tights and was instantly disappointed with how drab my outfit now looks. (It's actually not bad and I still like it, it's just not what I was envisioning and in the heat of the moment I was exaggerating how bad it looked.) Then because of this whole tight ripping incident I spent like 5 minutes putting on the pink tights, taking them off and putting on black ones. And 5 minutes may not seem like much but it's a lot when you're running late and trying to hurry.

So I'm on my way to work steaming about how upset I was over my tights and that I'm now going to be a few minutes late to work because of it and I didn't even get to have a filling breakfast when I finally started paying attention to the music that was playing from my iPod. "Happy Day" by Fee begins to play. This was one of the songs that Leeland, the worship band at ALIVE (more about that this week), played this weekend for us. And I immediately just stopped my grumbling and began praising my God. How absolutely wonderful that God knows just what I need to make me feel better. I needed just a simple song as a reminder of how blessed I am and how even though my morning may not have started off the way I wanted it to that this is a happy day!

A happy day indeed!! My sins are washed away. I am forever changed all because Jesus died to save me! Every single day, no matter what troubles or strife I am facing, is a happy day!! A happy day because I am saved and I am free! Hallelujah!! Go and enjoy this happy day!

  1. beautiful, Cindy. Sometimes I think little uplifting things come from God...to say: "Hey, chin up! It's not that bad! SMILE!"

    Your Happy Day song was just what you said....a reminder of how blessed you are.

    LOVE your positive outlook. Enjoy the rest of this glorious day. xoxo
