I feel like I need to say this more like a chant today, just over and over to myself. "Be joyful, Michelle. Pray. Be thankful. Be good. Be joyful. Pray. Be thankful." God has to remind me sometimes to let go of my own feelings and think of others. Regardless of how I feel, I have every opportunity to show grace, love, and kindness. I have the opportunity to be bitter, or joyful. How sad of me to ever miss that opportunity. I'm thankful for second chances, because today, I sadly chose a little bit of bitterness. Forgive me, God.
I'm ready to be thankful. I'm ready to do good to all people.
