Yesterday was a bad day.
I tried a lot of things to get into a better mood. I even listened to a sermon online by my favorite pastor (Colin Smith) from my favorite book of the Bible (Philippians), and while it calmed me briefly, even that failed to have a lasting positive effect.
We had people coming over, which terrified me. How could I have people over when I was in such a mood? Finally, I went into my bathroom and just prayed. I asked the Lord to carry me, protect me, and particularly to protect the people around me from me.
The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever. That's all I can say.
I went to bed early. I told DJ, "This was a very bad day. I am ready for this day to be over."
DJ said, "Some days are like that. You just have to throw in the towel, go to bed, and hope for a better tomorrow."
Today my dog is really, really sick and I have to take him to the vet. But even so, I feel so much better than I felt yesterday.
I am thankful for a new beginning. I am thankful for a new day.
