Tonight, as I was looking at the beautiful fall sky during sunset, I realized that lately colors seem brighter. Everything around me feels more magnified. Maybe that's also why my lows have seemed so low, and the darkness so dark. I think I was numb for a while, and now, I am celebrating how alive I am. It's a very good thing.
In church today we sang a song that mentioned how He makes us new. And I felt like this tired old self that I've been carrying around is due for a trade in. Why am I hanging onto all of this if He can just make me new again?
I am thinking about posting a little something each day that I appreciate or am grateful for. Not sure how it will work, but I want to chronicle some of the little and big things that make me feel alive each day. Today I felt such happiness when I went to pick up Gray from the church nursery. He's never looked sweeter. And he even made a craft. And then the sunset. It was beautiful, and the clouds were shaped like a heart.
Life of the Day, Day 01.
