I think I might have the flu, which is ironic because when I walked into Rite Aid earlier, they were offering flu shots as a special today. I said, “no thanks, we don’t do flu shots.” 😂 Maybe this isn’t the flu though; I’m just feeling a sore throats coming on again along with throbbing ears and upset stomach.
So, you may be asking yourself how I’m going to write about joy tonight. There are times that we have to choose joy instead of dwelling on whatever might be dragging us down. This is one of those times.
I choose to think on “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-anything that is excellent or praiseworthy”(Phil 4:8). God blessed me with some sweet moments of fellowship today as I ate lunch in the university cafeteria where I teach. Then, I had dinner with my bestie so I didn’t have to spend the evening alone. Relationships fill me with joy.
