So I listened this to a podcast this morning from Crosspointe Church. It was from their current sermon series Above Ground, and the message I listened to today was aptly titled Joy, and I HIGHLY recommend it. It challenged me in how I am viewing the world these days.
On a sidenote, as I reflected on Joy and was putting my living room back together I opened the curtain to see ROSES! I am much more a tulip, daisy, and daffodil gal, but, I must boast, that I have some gorgeous roses springing up all over my yard. And yes, I am thanking God for the little things today. I think I might pick a few to put on the dining room table.
