The world wants you to believe a person, product, or lifestyle can bring you fulfillment. Even as a Christian, it’s easy to fall for these empty promises and find yourself frustrated when they don’t deliver.
So, how can you experience soul-deep peace that endures beyond the sugar rush of earthly distractions?
Sometimes I can be so forgetful. Oh, girl, it’s bad sometimes. I forget my kids’ names. I forget phone numbers and appointments and birthdays.
Do you ever choose a word for the year? I do! I pick one so I can take the whole year to learn it, live it, receive it, and understand it!
So, what was my word for this year?
Not long after I picked that word, though, I broke my finger and my hero dad passed away. Those aren’t exactly ingredients for happiness, huh?
A broken finger was a painful annoyance, but losing my dad broke my heart. Even so, in the midst of it all, I am still learning what it means to be happy.
Forgetful. That’s me! The thing that drives me crazy about being forgetful is that I can’t remember what I forgot! How about you?
I forget my kids’ names. I forget phone numbers and appointments and birthdays. So, I write down all that important stuff (not my kids names, I really do know those) and then I forget where I put the paper. Girl, it’s bad sometimes!
I am about to turn 50 years old and I want to celebrate.
Any woman turning 50 should be able to celebrate however she wants to, right? (Nod your head.) She should be able to, at least for one week, celebrate by letting her inner most nerd escape and party. Right? (I hope you’re still nodding yes!)
Well since you agree, I am going to have a big C.S. Lewis bash for the next 7 days! (Strike up the band!) And below, I’ll share with you how to win the Ultimate C.S. Lewis Swag Bag!
I’m a firm believer that music can have powerful impact on your outlook. It can set the tone for your entire day.
So I have a playlist on my smartphone titled, “Happy, Happy, Happy.” And I will say, my title came long before Duck Dynasty made it popular. I started this playlist when I was in the midst of a deep depression. But, with God’s power and the gift of music He gave us, I was determined to do all I could to climb out of my pit.
