Happy May Day!

I woke up this morning to sun shining, birds chirping, and babies kicking inside my huge belly.

Everything about this day says, “it is time to be alive.”

Today, kindness is a choice. Humility is a part of my wardrobe. Patience will be my compass, and gentleness my sail. I will forgive and let go; consciously release stress and tension; and overall, put on love like a smile.

It is May Day.

A new day, a new month. My circumstances have not changed, but neither has my God. His mercies are new every morning, so my joy can be new too!

I flip the calendar and replace my white table cloth with a bright yellow one. I breathe thanks for a renewed perspective.

Peace will rule today. I am alive, but more importantly, Jesus is.
