Good morning ladies! It's such a beautiful day out my way, the sun is out and the skies are clear. Weather like this has been rare, so I'm going to enjoy it today!
I got up at my regular early time this morning, 5:00am- ugh! I get up at that time to exercise, and when I'm done I always feel so much better! Then I got myself ready, got dressed, hair and makeup, etc. I sat down at my kitchen table and had my quiet time, praying and reading my Bible.
I love how the Lord can fill a person with JOY, even if they don't wake up in the most joyful of moods. I feel joyful and I'm determined to have a joyful day. I'm going to get up and put on one of my pretty aprons, I'll wake up the kids with a little song and hugs & kisses, then I'll make them some nice hot oatmeal with brown sugar and maple syrup- it's one of their favorites! I'll smile at my husband when he gets up (it's his day off today), and be a lovely and joyful housewife today. This is what the Lord intends of me, and I'm happy to do it!
I hope you all have a joyful day as well!
