So it’s Sunday, the day before I will receive my results and my daughter the angel flew in to save me! We had a very tough day at church, heartache at some changes taking place. We drove home just empty and discouraged, that pit of darkness just kept getting darker and deeper as we approached our home. I felt like I was on the edge of it trying not to fall in! At dinner we were taking about that verse in James 4:1:2 – Consider it all joy, my brothers when you encounter various trials. How it is possible? … and how the last few months have been trial after trial for me and for our church. We finished up and went on to our nightly ritual, which includes girl-time for Raegan and I. This is where we chat and talk and I try to be very real with her. I was sharing how I felt on the edge of the sadness pit again and how tomorrow needed to be a great day or I may be back in the depths. My daughter “the angel” had a brilliant idea and she coined the “Consider It All Joy Card”. She helped me think of all the things that I adore or make me giddy happy and we made a colorful card to go with me for the next day. Needless to say I was in utter shock and by the time I went to bed I was ready for the next day, it was going to be a great day!
