when you have a joy in your heart. The week could have been better, but there's just a joy in having thanks for the things that are in your life. I have been reading "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp, and her perspective is refreshing. It is especially refreshing when I have been looking at things more than things but with thanks.
I want to lose weight, but I have to say that the drive that I had when I did it the first time was... selfish. I want to do it this time to give thanks for the body that God fashioned for me. It's not about the final number, but the joy and contentment that comes with self. I feel that now, but knowing that I am taking care of my body for God's glory brings a whole new level of joy.
I have joy, but I want the next level. I am devoted to God's honor. Joy!
