Life is Good

“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”

Don’t you just love the quiet? The silence at the end of the day when you fall asleep deep in reflections. Whether you’re falling over in exhaustion or you’ve cried yourself to sleep or you’re not feeling well or you drift off with a smile on your face…don’t forget to count the things that were good in your day.

Tonight, I sit here in quiet reflection, and my heart is satisfied.

I wish I could put this feeling into words, but they just aren’t coming to me. I don’t know if it can be explained. I am content.

I have had heartbreaks, I have felt the pain of my friends and families heartbreaks.  I have been lonely and alone. I understand confusion and hurt. But I am satisfied.

I am me. I have grown and I am growing. I am not content to stay forever the same, but I am also ok with being myself. Having my own convictions and understanding those with differing ones. I know I can be steady and I know I can be happy. And I am. I am very happy.

I love. Yes, I am also loved, but I love. It is not enough to always take, it is wonderful to also give. There are so many people I love with all my heart. Some of them will never know it but it doesn’t matter. Because I love, I pray, and I feel united because those I love are praying too.

I don’t know who all reads this. I know some of you don’t know me and have never met me.

Above all, I am born again. Above all, I know and have a relationship with the One who created me to be all things to the best of my ability for His pleasure. Above all, I am His and He is mine. Forever. Eternally.

Tonight, I rest under the shadow of His wings. He is my rock and my fortress. I am happy and content. I want to share my happiness and spread it to everyone I know, and because of this, I write…because that’s what I do and that’s how I handle my “feelings”.  Peace. That’s what it is, and it’s taken me this many words to figure it out.

I am peaceful tonight. Happy. Content. Peaceful.

My heart is satisfied.
