Next, I put the plates down in a 3×3 formation, and the girls took turns throwing their bean bags onto the plates. I read the phrase when they landed on the yellow plates and had them smile. I gave a frown when they landed on read. We then talked about how you can choose joy even if the situation isn’t ideal.
Amazing how God chooses exactly what he needs me to be working on in my own life. Here were my “choose joy” statements for the day.
I CHOOSE JOY when Corban knocks over a huge glass of juice as we are trying to leave the house.
I CHOOSE JOY as Corban poops twice in a row as we are trying to leave the house and then twists and fights off a diaper change.
I CHOOSE JOY as Corban runs out of the house with no shoes on resulting in soaking wet socks that I need to change.
I CHOOSE JOY as Kenzie is crying and whining.
I CHOOSE JOY as Corban cries 75% of the hour long visit to the doctor because he has a massive ear infection.
I CHOOSE JOY as blogger is not responding properly and posting takes twice as long as I wanted.
