I'm deciding to take enjoyment in this moment. This moment that isn't really considered to be enjoying. I'm sitting out in the car waiting for the AC repairman to come fix our air. It's nearly 100 outside.
I'm typing from my phone.
Today Tim was hit by someone who ran a red light as he was traveling back to the office. Thank goodness he was unharmed!
Oh and I also found out that my brother in law is in the hospital from a bad car wreck. (His vitals are improving, thankfully)
This day is really, on paper, a pretty shitty day. This day is more about finding peace and joy despite this one day. It's about recognizing so much love and so much to be thankful for. It's about seeing God work from such magical complexity that when looking back on your journey thus far that what He created for you was beyond your dreams. This kind of goodness wasn't even something you could fathom you deserved. It's here!
Even while waiting on the air repairman......
I want to leave you with words from Ryan Bingham.....
He is the wisest songwriter I know. He speaks of me. Of my struggles with my childhood. This truth he sings and releases. I catch it and do my own releasing. A bit like fishing I guess.
One day I thought i would be just like you...
I know now that you were never satisfied..
Now that I'm grown I am nothing like you.
I see the world with my own eyes
With so much love all around you
How could you never realize
The ground above, the sky below you.
Must beat the hell outta being alive.
(Thank you Kolleen!,,,,8s)
Little moments when you realize a crappy day can enlighten and inspire you tenfold than a retreat in the high country of the grandest canyon on earth and the most stunning red rock these eyes have ever seen. That's magic right there. And His name is nameless. HE is my everything.
