Joy Comes With the Morning

Though the sorrow may last for the night, joy comes with the morning!

I'm not exactly sure how it began, but somewhere down the line I thought I could rely on myself, my own flesh, to be strong enough for the difficult everydays. And everyday is difficult. Everyday comes with it's challenges. It is a rare gift to have that exceptional day free of challenges.

But it is through these challenges I am learning to endure. Slowly learning, but learning.

His mercies are new every morning - friends, we have reason to CELEBRATE!!!

It is through all the challenges I must look for ways to celebrate His blessings:

18. still & silent evenings

19. cheery children

20. chattering children

21. being lead by the Spirit

22. Young Peacemaker curriculum (lifesaver in our home!)

23. a daughter with a beautiful heart - a heart to please Him

24. sacred time basking in His presence [in worship]

25. knowing that God hears my cries for help
