I have searched my Bible for answers for why we have to go through hardships. I know why, He is preparing us to be used for His glory. More on that later, though. I'm still writing that one and will post it as soon as I finish it.
I've also been trying to revamp the look of this blog. I will be making a few changes over the next week or so (if I have time) to help improve the looks, and hopefully, add a subscribe button so you can be updated as soon as I add a new post. I don't want my readers (all 4 of your) to miss anything! :)
I'm also doing Ann Voskamp's Joy Dare Challenge and searching for 3 things to be thankful for. You can find out more about that here. I highly recommend it. I am making a conscious effort to be happy. There are days when I struggle and days when I just want to give up and wallow in self-pity, but I don't like to do that. I would much rather be happy.
.... and speaking of happy, there's a 16 year-old boy who lives in this house (he calls me mom and can't clean up his room for anything!) who is on happy cloud nine right now. Why? I can give you one reason, a 1996 red short-wheelbased Chevy 4x4.
Seeing his joy has put a smile on my face all weekend...not to mention I get chauffeured around (he won't let me drive it!)
That's all for tonight, but check back in a few days, maybe I'll have this blog spiffed up and have something worth reading.
