Choosing Joy...A Good Habit

Our air-conditioning went out on Wednesday afternoon and it has been rather warm in our house. The Lord has been good. He knew that this would happen to us and gave us this cooler weather and nice breezes. As soon as the air went out on Wed. the Lord reminded me of the verse that says, "Give thanks in all things" and reminded me that in this small matter He is still in control.

We are also blessed that Chris's Dad has a friend who works on air-conditioners and is supposed to come out sometime today.

When the kids have gone out in the past I am constantly reminding them to shut the door. They are letting all the cool air out and the hot air in. Well, Christopher was going outside a little while ago to jump on the trampoline and he was holding the door open. I stopped myself before I told him to keep the door shut so he does not let the cooler air out. I started laughing...such a habit.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Choose JOY!!!!

You guys!! Your not supposed to be having house problems...that's usually reserved for us with old homes!! Hope you get your air fixed before it gets too hot again!

Thanks for the reminder to choose - it's been a rough day here!
Hope you get the A/C fixed soon - it was HOT today!
If you need to enjoy some cool air - come on over! I'm still shouting at my kids to shut the door! :-)

I hope your air gets fixed soon. At least you aren't pregnant! When we lost power in our first house, I was pregnant with son #1 and I had to take several cold showers a day and go to bed with my hair wet just to survive! Ha! It is all a matter of perspective sometimes. Although, my dear friend Mrs. Troop likes to remind me that just because someone else has more difficult circumstances, it doesn't make what you are going through at the moment any easier.

Have a great day and stay cool!
