J.O.Y.

one baby is sleeping.
one is not.
so i sit down at the computer. sip my coffee. and type out some thoughts
as my five kids play "cow" around my feet.
it's a beautiful thing. :)

(aria and karolina...usually have to be right with these two, or there is poking and tackeling. :)
aria usually has a headband in her hair, but karolina has taken to pulling her's out as well. :(   )

i opened Jesus Calling this morning.
and this is what i read:

i am creating something new in you: a bubbling spring of Joy that spills over into others' lives.
do not mistake this Joy for your own or try to take credit for it in any way.
Instead, watch in delight as My Spirit flows through you to bless others.
Let yourself become a reservoir of the Spirit's fruit.

Your part is to live close to Me, open to all that I am doing in you.
Don't try to control the streaming of My Spirit through you.
Just keep focusing on Me as we walk through this day together.
Enjoy My Presence, which permeates you with Love, Joy, and Peace.

it seemed so fitting for me today.
right where i am at.
and then i think about how this devotional has been best selling this year.
and how millions of people are reading this very thing today.
just. like. me.

crazy to think about.
here's to enjoying your day. :)
