My Joys

So, it's been a rough 2014, but out of all the sadness, loss, and disappointment, I still find joy in several things...(besides my God who gives me ULTIMATE joy)!

I find joy in writing. A new story that has brewed in my heart for years!

I find joy in friendships. My friends have been such a light in my life. What would I do without them??

I find joy in my children. Ah, my children! So sweet and yet, soooooo energetic! HA!

I find joy in my husband. Although it's been a rough time for both of us, he has always showed me love.

And funny enough, with all the seriousness in my life, I find joy in something not so serious but OH SO FUN...Jamberry! My little business venture has been a blast! Check out my website: www.angiedicken.jamberrynails.net 

Have a Happy Tuesday!

Peek-a-boo Hope

Why do I fall for it?

I get my hopes up and then they fizzle out before I can even treasure them for a moment.

It's like when you have a dream and you can fly but you wake up right before you take off, so you squeeze your eyes close and pray for sleep again...but it doesn't happen...and the dream fades away and you can hardly remember it.

There is only one place I can know for sure. One place where my hope doesn't escape through my clenching fists. And He is there. Even in the dreamless nights, and the colorless days, He is there.

I just wish that His Hope would rub off on my little hopes, so that they would last a little longer.
