Count it All Joy - Just Like Eeyore

How was my day had been? My body is exhausted. My back aches. I feel sleepy. Today is one of those days that feels normal. Like nothing spectacular happened. But if I close my eyes and try to replay what happened throughout my day, I see happy faces. I see beautiful smiles. I see tight hugs. I see frustration.  I see laughter. I see a pat on my back coupled with proud words, "That's my girl!" 

Today I was thinking about Adam and Eve. Did it ever cross your mind what kind of animal God killed to use its skin to cover His precious children from nakedness? Straight away I thought, it must be a lamb. I wonder why of all animals God chose a lamb? Is it because it looks so cute and innocent? My reasoning is so shallow, so human. God's reason is so much more than that. The symbol of a lamb plays a significant role in the story of salvation. It something that I need to dig deeper in a study if I want to find out why.

Meanwhile, Felicia after tucked in by their Dad to sleep came out minutes later and complained that her cow plush has a hole on the back. Last night while taking out laundry from the washer, I found a fuzzy thing that looked familiar. A cow's tail. She finally figured out that her cow was missing a tail. She laughed like crazy after we told her what happened last night. She thought it was silly. Her Daddy said her cow is like Eeyore who lost his tail.

I sewed it back on and tomorrow when she wakes up, she will be delighted that her cow has its tail, back. 😍

Just like Eeyore who lost his tail.

All better!

"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience." - James 1:2-5
