As i sit here with a green mask on my face, whitestrips on my teeth and a bed full of unfolded clothes, I managed to feel so utterly happy. I have learned to understand the bold differences between being happy and embodying joy. Right now in my current situation, I feel pretty happy. A night full of family, a great movie, and a lot of things just going right. I try not to hold onto these things too long. But don't get me wrong, I do love the feeling. I'm learning and always trying to have on my mind why I should be joyous. I actually don't want to always remind myself, I want it to be a habitual reoccurrence, on going. Because deep down the road, Jesus is the only non-perishable I have on my journey called life.
And in the words of Casting Crowns:
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.
