My favorite quote is “Don’t sweat the small stuff”. But do I live by this motto every day? No! It’s very hard not to. After a long day at work you feel like,”I just want to go home.”  However, you remember you have to stop at the grocery store. This means, finding a parking space, dealing with the crowds because everyone had to stop at the store, loading your car and unloading when you get home. Ugh! Small annoyances can ruin your day if you let them. Scripture says, “put joy in all you do.” (James 1:2-3)  Choose joy even when that lady at the cash register ahead of you has 12 books of coupons! Choose joy when you have waited on that perfect parking spot and some young kid rips in it right before your eyes! We all have a choice; we can grumble and give ourselves a headache or we can choose to be joyful and grateful that we have the money to go to the store and a car to park! God loves each and every one of us. He wants us to have joy! Have a blessed day! 🙂
