Flagging this morning... Come on, soul! Rejoice. Pray. Be thankful. In ALL circumstances. Grumpy monday mornings are not the exception to the rule. Do not just rejoice in yesterday's goodness, in scrabbling together a list of thankfulness from the past - although that isn't a bad idea - but wake up to the reality of today. His mercies are new right now. His plan is unfolding as I text. He is pouring out his goodness and love over a broken and hurting world with each character that I type. He is setting his love minute by minute upon us. Oh, come on, soul! Quit your grumbling, your whining, your can't-really-be-bothered-ness. Breathe in deep, look up into the blue sky, smell the freshly dug soil and be GLAD.
