- Sorry it's been a week since I've written...you'd think it was because I was too busy or stressed, but truthfully this has been one of the most peaceful, joy-filled weeks I've ever had. Nothing's changed in my schedule or daily routine or even my environment...I'm still as busy and swamped as ever, but somehow I've been unable to stop smiling, unable to prevent my mouth from widening every time I cross the street or walk through a door. People have always seen me as a smiley person, but this feels different; it's not the kind of joy that comes from getting a promotion or throwing a party or even having a "lucky" day...it's a godly joy that's completely independent of my circumstances--it's the purest joy that is rooted in who GOD says He is, not in what I'm experiencing, feeling, or doing in the moment. . . There's a Bible verse that says "The joy of the Lord is your strength!" (Neh 8:10). And truly, that's what it feels like--the joy that comes from knowing and being known by the Lord is POWERFUL. It feels like a superpower: no matter what situation or mood or environment I (or others) am in, just remembering I am a child of God is enough to make me grin from ear to ear, enough to make me want to hug the next person I see or buy flowers for someone for no reason other than pure joy. Call it crazy, weird, or obnoxious (I've been hyper all week haha), but I'll stick to calling it "blessed". :) For it is a blessing--a gift--to know the Lord and to know I am loved and cherished by Him like no other. . . I dunno how long this hyper-ecstatic-slightly-obnoxious joy is going to last, but I'd like to think that it's here to stay, at least in part. I'd like to think that regardless of my circumstances or my ups and downs in emotions/thoughts/moods, regardless of the craziness and brokenness and scariness of the world around me, the truth that God is good, faithful, and life-giving is enough to sustain, encourage, and root me in His joy. And my hope is you will discover (or re-discover) that kind of untarnished, indescribable, invincible joy, too. πŸ’ž Have a blessed week, loved ones. :) May you be God-centered and joy-filled! #prayerjourney #joy #joyful #Heisgood

- ...sometimes a gyal needs 2 inches less weight. I always change my hair when something major happens. This is overdue. And no worries...one of the many things I do well, is hair. (And even if not...it's just hair. It keeps growing even after we die!) ❀ I'll clean the blunt ends up and tomorrow I'll share a new color and slightly shorter, neater tresses. Call it my mom cut. . . . #changeisgood #longhairdontcare #still #chop #snip #cut #shear #haircut #freshstart #reset #dramatic #deadends #deadweight #free #me
