Life....a roller coaster ride.

Today the Fry household is a little bummed out. Life really is a roller coaster ride, with many ups and downs. Sometimes it seems like everything is going great, and working out just like you had hoped. Then there are the "other" days. Days that we wish we didn't have. Days that you realize, the things that you had hoped and prayed for, aren't going to come to pass. You wonder, why did God take you down this road, only to close the door at the end? 

I got the same email yesterday from two separate people. Pretty sure God was trying to tell me something in this email, so I read it...and reread it. I even read it a third time! In this email there was wisdom. Wisdom that I needed to hear. Several of the tips were wonderful, but two really hit home..

Don't have negative thoughts on things you cannot control.
          Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

Smile and laugh more.

So today we are going to focus on the present moment. We are still going to smile and laugh and move forward. Smiling doesn't always mean everything is going perfect. It means that you are trying to find the good, and refuse to let your worries consume your thoughts. It means that you can choose to be happy, even though it's easier to not.  We are going to trust that God knows what He is doing, even when we don't. We are going to lay in the bed and eat sugary M&M's, while reading about how to have a healthy life style! ;-) After all, we never did finish our lessons on living a well balanced life!
