last week i was sitting outside pretending i was at the beach. just relaxing. happy as a clam. the sun was shining, the air was fresh- it just felt good outside. there was a nice breeze. we were washing clothes, so it even smelled really good outside, like freshly dried clothes.  i was reading an awesome book, allegiant {a post on that to come, soon!!}. so basically, i was a happy camper.

when all the sudden, there was this loud noise. and it would not stop. where did my peace and relaxation go? erg.

but just then, a light bulb went off in my head. i can either choose to let this really bother me and be crabby or i can choose to focus on the other 100 positive things that are going on around me or have happened that day/week. i've realized that we can have peace no matter where we are. we can choose to have peace and focus on God and good things he's given instead of focusing on the negative things surrounding us.

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." Phillipians 4:8

happy sunday, y'all. i pray that today to choose to focus on God and the good things He has given you.
