Even though I have found consistency in my mornings, I have been struggling to smile as I head out the door to work. I used to enjoy my mornings immensely, but since the switch over to earliness has occurred I have found it impossible to relax and enjoy those beginning hours of the day. I only feel rushed and exhausted. I have been praying that God would make “His Joy Come in the Morning,” but had no luck my first week out. However, last week he really brought it home.
I love old VW Bugs. So much. And if they come in a bright color, they are even more awesome to me. When I see them on the road, I cannot help but smile. I love little things like that, and I think each person has different ones. God knows this, and he knows what each individual persons simple love is. I also love to be on time, I do not do it out of obligation, I do it because I enjoy being an on time person. It translates to dependability to me. I like hitting the same points in the road at the exact same time each morning. It is a little OCD, but a tolerable amount…
Now to combine these loves… Tuesday morning, at 7:17am, this pink VW Bug merged onto the road next to me. This in and of itself would be enough to make me smile, but when it happened for 4 days in a row, I felt blessed by it J It is weird how God meets us. I looked forward to seeing that little bug. It’s pink exterior made a smile spread across my face and reminded me I was on time to work. It was like doubling my joy in that moment.
What brings you joy friends?
I have so many little loves J
Tell me about yours!
