Have you ever had one of those days where life felt like a 16 hour roller coaster ride?
That was my day yesterday. 🙂 😦
It began by climbing high above the clouds to one of the most miraculously wonderful days I’d experienced in quite sometime then plummeted downhill at the speed of sound leaving my heart and stomach somewhere in between.
In my younger years the roller coaster was always my favorite ride. I would travel the country in search of a bigger better faster higher scarrier roller coaster. I loved the thrill of the ups and downs.
Today not so much.
Or at least not in my personal life.
I’m kind of longing for those fancy merry go rounds with their beautiful carousel horses.They play joyful music as they gently and slowly spin around and around.
In spite of it, I wouldn’t trade yesterday for all the tea in China. You see, it was a great learning experience. I learned something new about alot of things. Myself, for one. I pushed my world outside of the box in several ways. That’s what life is about. It’s a journey that each day brings something new. If you aren’t comfortable with it just hold on tomorrow will offer another ride in the amusement park. One you will love!
Tomorrow will be a new day.
I also learned alot about my fellow man. Their boundaries. Their breaking points. Their compassion.
In the ever changing world we live in, It is so comforting to know that we have a God that loves us every day unconditionally and is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. No roller coaster ride with Him. He’s more like the Sky Ride. Nice and smooth. High above the action looking down on everything. He’s got it.
As I reflect on my day yesterday, I am grateful for all those I have in my life that care about me. That help me be the best I can be! I pray for all those that aren’t as fortunate. I’m grateful for the blessings of knowing my God. Knowing He is always there to love me, guide me, and comfort me.
I hope you are grateful too for the same things. If not, know I am here to help in anyway I can. God loves you. And I love you too! That’s how God made me.
He also made me love roller coasters! But next time let’s go to Disney World to enjoy them.;)
For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
Love and laughter,
