Life is good

​I must be the most privileged people alive. I am sitting outside my back door enjoying the beautiful warm weather. There are a few whispy clouds in the sky. I can hear doves cooing and birds singing. In the distance some hadidas are giving their cries for help.  a joke about hadidas having a fear of heights. I laughed about it for days when I first heard it.

Joy is so good for the soul and it costs nothing, just like sunshine. There are so many things in life that are absolutely free and that we overlook so often. I have never gone to bed hungry because I didn’t have food. I’ve never had to wonder where my next meal would come from. I have a happy marriage and two beautiful children who are such a blessing.

God has been good to me and continues to be good to me. I have received way more grace than I deserve – not that any of us deserve grace. It wouldn’t be grace if it was deserved. 

Life is good.
