So in this blog here I decided to write a Joy for each day because I was having trouble finding joy in each day and I said, “I refuse to go through a day without stopping to see where God has worked and I don’t want to take for granted any more the time I have.” So I thought I would share some of the things I’ve found joy in the last month or so:
Monday, January 24th: “Today I had the funniest conversation in my car with four of the most precious angels that I work with. We were driving from the gym back to Harvest Hands and one told me she only likes Jesus and God music so I turned off the radio and we sang “Who’s the King of the Jungle”. Except when they get to the part where you say “His name is J-E-S-U-S YES!” They all came to a dead stop at the same time and said, “Miss Abby we don’t know how to spell Jesus!” So funny!
Tuesday, January 25th: Mandy and I went to the Adventure Science Center for their adults only after hours event and it was so fun! It was my first time going and an early birthday present for her! My favorite part: The Germ Game. Our team won every time!
Sunday, January 30th: My pastor and his wife, Jim and Jessica, came over for lunch and had a good time getting to know them better and spend time with their sweet baby Justus.
Wednesday, February 2nd: Civil Wars Concert with Amanda Lian. One word: Magical.
Tuesday, February 8th: Found out I could go to Florida with my family in April!!!
Thursday, February 10th: Found out Jake got into PT school!
Monday, February 14th: Valentine’s Day spent with these crazy boys, my 2/42 group and then finished the night at The Saucer.
Wednesday, February 16th: Saw Committed in concert! They’re amazing and I was so glad I got to see them with Mandy, Tricia, and Jen.
Today, Sunday, February 27th: A wonderful time at church and a reminder of God’s love for me and the blessing of a church family. Good time with friends, conversations in parking lots, Sunday afternoon naps, cereal for your 10:00 snack and a night to yourself.
I’m discovering sometimes it’s the events, sometimes it’s the people, and sometimes it’s the little things that bring joy to my days. I’m excited to see what the rest of the year holds.
