To smile through good times and bad, through happy tears and sad tears.
Somehow, it is with this smile, that I can make it through the hardest storms.
I made that my motto during the month I was there at Scottish Rite...I was going to smile.
Its amazing, the more I smiled, the lighter my spirit felt, the stronger I felt.
When the world looked like it was going to fall apart, as the monitors beeps and alarmed...I cried and I smiled.
I held tight to peoples prayers and knew, whatever happened, God knew the bigger picture.
Since I gave my life fully to Christ, I made it my mission to always try to look for the lesson in each battle and remind myself, God must think I am pretty strong to give me this.
Also, if God got me to it, He would get me through it.
I struggled with Josiah's Journey diagnosis..but now, I take it a day at a time and do what all I can to help my little boy get all he needs in this life.
I sit in the rocking chair morning and night, singing little songs of Jesus love to him..that he will grow up knowing that Jesus loves him very much.
I want him to know the power of a smile and of courage for facing another day...which is only available with the love of Christ.
He makes another day worth living. He gives me strength enough for each day.
I read recently that if we are suffering with feeling especially down, that every hour we should send a prayer to God of something we are thankful for...and the more we do this, the more we find.
Its just like the more we think about the problems in our life the more problems we will find..same goes.
Mind over matter.
Just like the day of Moses, the song of victory...that song was a reminder to them of all that God had done for them.
May we each create our own song of victory with Christ.
Sing today a song of rejoicing not of sorrow..for with God with us, who can be against us?!
