As you can tell from the title I’m in a very JOYish mood! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well really I’m a generally joyous person. I like to describe myself as a balloon (filled with helium, thank you), I might get pulled down but I always bob back up. (I just randomly thought of Winnie the Pooh. I love Pooh. Okay Sarah, focus…)

And no I’m not ADD/ADHD or any of those letters, or on a sugar high, I’m just acting like it right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Nothing super spectacular happened today – I worked at my dad’s place, tutoring math to little kids. The tutors there love teasing me and talking to me. I enjoy being in the middle there – too old to be a pupil, really too young to be a tutor, yet there I am. I drove to work without shoes today, which was a very new experience that I found to be exciting and enjoyable once I got used to it. It also made me feel wonderfully Duvall-ish, even though I wasn’t driving a lifted truck splattered with mud.

I didn’t decide to go shoeless on a whimsy, though, I did it for TOMS Shoes,
an organization that sells shoes – and for every pair you buy they give ย a

pair to kids that really need them. I’ve wanted to buy a pair of their shoes but just can’t justify the price… but today was TOMs annual “One Day Without Shoes”, and since I’ll seize any excuse to go barefoot (plus it’s for a good cause!!), I gladly participated.
<– There’s what their organization does. Because you were interested.

Then on the drive home, once I hit the gravel road where no one drives, I stopped and looked at the clouds. They were moving so fast from the wind it was like watching a time lapse movie… in real time. There’s something very awesome about watching clouds shift and move smoothly across the sky, almost like white, celestial tongues of fire. Forming, dissipating… very neat to watch.

So… why I am all JOYish? Well you see it’s because there’s Jesus, then Others, and then there’s You do do dooo… ๐Ÿ™‚ I apologize to you readers. I will be much more solemn in the next post. Actually probably not, but compared to this post, yes.

Really why wouldn’t I be joyish? (By the way that’s not a word. So don’t use it where anyone would read it and laugh at you, e.g. a book, a school paper, a blog…) No matter what happens, life is in God’s hands. ๐Ÿ™‚ And He’s good. He’s not a tame lion, but He is good.

Thanks for putting up with me. I applaud you – you have earned a Dove chocolate.
