Joyous Exclamation

I am so happy.
There are reasons to be sad,
But I must refuse
To let myself indulge in
Any negativity.

I choose happiness.
Every day I pick feeling
Positive and good,
Even problems cannot bring
My spirits down into dust.

God fills my heart with
Joy that overflows into
Every corner of
My existence making me
Feel wonderfully alive.

I am so happy.
My days are filled with comfort,
I cannot complain,
I am blessed with miracles
Brightening each day I live.

I am grateful:

1.   AT&T woke me this morning so I got an early start to my day.
2.   I was able to write a note and have Mom sign it so she did not have to go inside the courthouse and wait in line for tags.
3.   I had enough money to pay my bills today.
4.   It rained this afternoon after I was finished being outside.
5.   I am completing this entry earlier than I have for several days.

I hope you had a good Monday. I was busy, but things went well. I hope you will take some time to do something creative now. Surely there is something you can write about, paint, or photograph. You must not underestimate yourself. God endowed you with imagination and creativity.

My prompt for you is to write a joyful poem, story, or journal entry. If you are a visual artist make an image of something that represents joy to you. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

I hope you enjoyed your visit here. If you have thoughts or suggestions, please leave a comment for me.

Always,
Jo Ann
