Finding Joy

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him.” -Psalm 28:7-

I’m the kind of person who can easily get overwhelmed…or maybe I get rightfully overwhelmed, and I’m just the kind of person who overbooks and says yes to too many things. Yeah. Yeah, let’s go with that.

Lately, I’ve been trying to challenge myself to take a picture every time something happy occurs (or almost every time). Each time I’m thankful for something and feeling joy, I snap a photo. Even if it’s on my crappy little non-iPhone cell phone (…so old school…), I like to have a memory of the happy things, and it helps me feel less overwhelmed and more grateful. :)

Mom took me horseback-riding before work this week. SUPER joyful. :)

I got to ride Dixie again – she is the best horse eveeeeer.

My Mama rocks.

Hubs and I went on an early morning bike ride yesterday. :)

Mom gave me this to get me through work. Hello, happiness.

We went to Longhorn for dinner last night, a la Mom and Dad’s gift card for dog-sitting. :)

Hubs left me a sweet note for when I got home from work the other night. I wuv him.

We are so blessed, and God is so good.

Happy Friday! :)
