Today, I spent the day with one of my new bff’s. It is absolutely like we were made for each other. I picked her up around 7am after she had just gotten off work from a 12 hour shift. We (ok, I) drove two hours away to a continuing ed class for Play Therapy/Ethics. We do not have our licenses yet but we really wanted to go. It was one of the best decisions I have made so far since beginning my Masters.
As we sat at lunch with our new friends we talked and discussed. Listened. Each one of us said, “that’s why we do this” at least once. We all have a story. God has written our story way before we even knew what that meant. He listens and helps guide your story depending on the choices you make. Ultimately, it is up to us to choose happy.
It’s not all roses and sunshine. If the sky were always grey and we didn’t have coffee our outlook could feel cold. However, we are able to get up and make that hot water for tea or coffee and just live a minute at a time. Even if that minute is the hardest minute you have ever felt. It will get better and there is always hope in the morning.
I will do my best to get better at this writing thing. I’m learning how to fight my battles through hundreds of pages of papers I have written for school. (By the way, that song is great!) Michael W. Smith “Fight my battles”
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
1 Peter 5:10 NIV
