Those two little words have caused much angst within.
Sounds easy enough, right?!
I may stay on the topic of joy for a few days. Partly, because I need to talk it out (haha, "talk"), and, partly because, I am too tired to write much again tonight.
But, I will tell you about a small victory that I had in this area of my life.
The day we returned from vacation, and there were loads and loads and loads of laundry to do, I could have been grumpy. Really grumpy. Instead, every time I wanted to complain, I just thanked God that we even had clothes to wash and wear. It really did change my attitude!
Today, I had a stinky attitude all afternoon. I probably chose it. I certainly did not choose joy.
So, before you go to sleep, you can pray for me. :-D
For I am determined to have it!
