Head. Feels. Stuffed.
The average human head weighs eight pounds. At least that’s what the kid said on Jerry Maguire.
Right now mine weighs about 37 pounds.
I feel like a bobble-head version of myself.
There are other descriptors that I might use, but honestly, they’d put you off your lunch. And who wants to hear another whine about “I’ve got a cold in Seattle?” A better question is, “Who DOESN’T have a cold in Seattle?” I thought that was one of the selling points of the Northwest. Constant nose drippage and Dayquil on tap.
So it may surprise you, (it certainly surprises me) that I’m choosing joy today.
As in, “This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” I’m taking a few moments this morning and rejoicing over all the wonderful things that I can identify as a blessing. I love my wife, I love my family, I love my church, and I love my life. All these are gifts graciously given from the hand of a Loving Father.
I don’t know where you are today, nor what you’re struggling with.
But Jesus does. And He loves you.
And if you spend a few minutes to look, you’ll find that the evidence of His love is all around you. This is another one of His gifts, this day.
Let’s be glad in it together.
