Serenity Prayer

Things don’t always go the way you plan them… Sometimes it takes a bit longer to get to where you want to be… Sometimes the road seem to go forever… Sometimes the wait could be too much to bear… But with God by my side, I know I can hang on just a little bit longer…

Glorious Sunrise

The alarm goes off, the puppies go crazy, and the dogs on the bed start to fight for attention… I just want 5 more minutes, please let me stay under the covers for another 5 minutes? So I snooze the alarm and cozy up again, but then I can’t get back to sleep. So, begrudgingly, I drag myself off the warm, cozy bed to make coffee and breakfast.

I am not a morning person. I am grumpiest in the morning, even with my large mug of freshly brewed French Vanilla coffee. I go through the motions of getting ready for work in zombie mode, stare into nothingness while on the passenger seat of the car, pretend to smile and greet people with a plastered smile while waiting for my brain to heat up and function properly.

And then I see this…

Isn’t that a great way to jump start your work day?
