"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice." Philippians 4:4
God tells us in the Bible over and over to rejoice, whether we feel like it or not, we should rejoice in the Lord of our salvation. Things may not be going your way. Work is a pain in the rear, kids are all over the place, school is stressful, the spouse is not in the best of moods, there is sickness and life in general is just not working out like you had hoped or planned. God tells us to rely solely on Him because He is the one in control anyway and rejoice.
The Lord has seen fit to give us all another day to wake up and have the opportunity to make a difference. Don't lose or abuse it, make it count!
This weekend was really beautiful. Thanks for all the well wishes on the basketball game.. we lost by 7 points but the girls (including mine) played the best I have seen them all year long. They were sad they lost, but were given a great opportunity and they did not disappoint us at all!! Just wait until next year!! Until next time, Lord willing... love ya!
