There is fresh snow on the mountains and the beautiful sunshine and blue skies for the past several days have been absolutely glorious. But in the midst of the beauty I have been fighting a cold, first a head cold and now it has moved into my chest.
At the same time I am preparing to speak on Wednesday morning on 'Choosing Joy at Christmas'. As I have been reviewing my notes, I've been reminded again of the truth of what I will be sharing....that joy truly is a choice.
Just as I choose to daily look for things for which to be thankful, I also daily have a choice to choose joy, even when I am not feeling good.
So today I will focus on God's goodness and faithfulness, even when I'm sick!
I will choose to bask in the sunshine,
and today I will declare that God is my Refuge and my Strength!
