Day 4 #behappychallenge


It’s been a struggle to be happy today. Baby didn’t sleep well last night, which meant Mommy didn’t sleep well last night. Plus she had a doctor appointment this morning and we were rushing around to make sure we weren’t late for that. There was a comment on Facebook that left me rattled. The weather was overcast. I’m grieving about my Grandma. Do I really need to go on about the things that got to me today? Let’s talk about something that makes me happy.

I wish I could say that I realized this on my own, but that would be a lie. But something that makes me happy is the fact that the Bible is written down, and not an oral history or religion. There are so many times that it is so easy to let my feelings or circumstances overtake me (like today) but it makes me so very happy, and thankful, that the divinely inspired Word of God is written down. It seems like a duh sort of thing, but when I think about it, I would be so lost if I didn’t have the Bible to turn to in times of pain, suffering, joy, loss, rejoicing, and celebrating. I would be in such a deficit if I had to remember scripture for each of those situations. Just another reminder to me that God knows what he is doing.
