Ben & Jerry or the bright side?

Sometimes these moods come along.. The kinds of moods that a shopping spree, a girls night out or two hours of Edward Cullen himself (in the flesh) could not cure. They are ever so rare.. they creep in whenever you least expect it. They are a nasty side effect to a headache, a sad movie, a bad date or your past showing up again. In the middle of one of these 'funks', you can either grab a box of tissues & the Notebook and relieve your stress, or you can turn it around in your head until you feel almost.. satisfied about things.

So WHAT if you have a bad day.. life is made up of the fabulous, beautiful, life changing days. Days that make you put on a sundress and cowboy boots & lie in your front yard with your bestfriend. However,the good days just happen be found sprinkled among the lonely & annoying days. Those are the ones that force you to seek out Ben & Jerry for yet another night-in on the couch with the sappiest ChickFlick out. Yes, you might have gotten ignored, rejected or.. revisited, but you are alive.. breathing God's air & surrounded by God's people. You are looking into the mirror at God's own masterpiece.. woven together by His own two hands & sealed with his kiss of approval.

Psalm 139:14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

And.. after hearing that, what could possibly be so bad? You are made by the hands of a mighty God.. & when keeping that in the bottom of your heart, what role are bad days going to play in the long run after all?
