Today was one of those days for me.
You know, one of those crazily stressful, yet enjoyable days? The ones where you constantly oscillate between This is a good day! and Why did I get out of bed?
Between a headache that wouldn’t ease up, and a situation I would really rather go away and leave me alone, I had moments where I just wanted to bang my head against the wall.
But then, that is when grace whispers soft, reminding me that now, right here, this is what God is using to change me into His Image. And when I feel worn out, tired of being hurt again and again, I am reminded of how small this momentary prick really is, compared to the immeasurable sacrifice He gave for me, for you, to make us His.
When I really stop and think about it, I have so much to be thankful for. That headache? Some people live in chronic pain, day in and day out, and tylenol with a coke won’t help. That painful situation? There was laughter and friendship in the past.
I am learning to appreciate the sting of pain because it means I am alive and I can feel. And that is a gift.
On another note… today I felt as though fall officially began! I had a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino, and it was so good.
My Mamma and I had a shopping day today, and if you know me, you know how much I love sneakers. Don’t know me? I will give you a hint: a lot.
I bought these since they combine
two three of my favorite things in life: sneakers, cats, and Taylor Swift. Aren’t they adorbs?
P.S. I don’t make anything from the links above, just sharing the love.
