most difficult day of the week

so as soon as sunday hits, every week, i get super depressed.  i work 9-5 every sunday, which means i miss church, i miss seeing my friends, i miss worshiping with my church famiily ... most difficult thing i have to do all week.  BUT i've been doing this devotional since christmas and its talking alot about joy and being in THIS moment.  its been so good for me ... and today as i sit here getting ready to work i'm finding it really hard today.  so i'm going in today with this as my prayer:

I can find JOY in every circumstance
I will reJOYce in THIS moment
I find rest where there is JOY
GOD is my JOY!!

hope you can find JOY today!!

splendid ... just splendid

I had THE most splendid coffee today ... it sure wasn't the coffee that made it so spectacular ... it was my dearest friend Mariel!  I think I sometimes take for granted the amazing people I have in my life, until they go away and I don't see them for a while ... and I realize how amazing they are and how much I love them.  And sometimes friends don't even have to 'go away' ... maybe I won't see them for a few days ... and when I hang out with them I realize how lucky and honored I am to have such wonderful friends!  

I spent New Years Eve with my family (Matt included :)) and Sara and Jordan ... It was the perfect way to ring in the New Year ... trying to eat 12 grapes in 1 minute, sitting at the edges of the table eating, and watching a movie that, of course, I feel asleep in!  ... but really ... if I was to describe to you a splendid evening with family and close friends ... last night would have been it!!  

So thank you to all of you who make my life so amazing and who have invested in my life and made me the person I am today.  

I wish each of you a year full of happiness and many blessings.  

HAPPY 2011!!!!
