I thank GOD He's a God so patient with me even in my struggles.
Is a blessing.
And these days...
I envy those who smile from their soul.
People whose gladness can be felt down to their hearts!
Gladness evades me.
My smiles are fleeting.
Good thing the joy of the Lord gives me the strength I need to make it through the tough times and the hope I need to face another day
The hope I need to continue to see this process all the way through to the end.
My funny bone is brittle.
Stretching hurts! I want to belly laugh again -
Belly laugh again to the point where I wake up the next morning and my soul is still grinning.
The last time I laughed like that...
Laughed without feeling insecure or self conscious or thinking about the next thing-
Was a year ago.
Golden smiles and belly laughs will happen again. I just need to be patient.
God said He would give me gladness in exchange for my sorrow. I'm looking forward to that.
And I pray I won't soon forget these lessons and take the gladness He gives for granted.
Smile on Pilgrims!!
