I have a headache but that won't stop me

I had a crappy day yesterday.  At least it ended well, it was my dad's birthday and he loved his present!  And I loved being with family to celebrate him! 

I crawled into bed with a book at 8:30 and was sleeping by 9ish.  I was tired, I didn't get up until 5:30.  I didn't go to the gym.  I woke up with a migraine.  Took an excedrin migraine, and typically, it gets better, but today, as of now, its getting worse and I have the shakes from the caffeine.  Great.

I refuse to let today define me.  I refuse to say that this will be a bad day.  It is a day, just like all others, that we were made to love.  I'm not sure how that will be defined today, but I will stitch my day in prayer, and I will ask for God to reveal ways for me to love.  I resolve to answer the call when its made.  I resolve to love even though it hurts.  And I resolve that I will rejoice in this day, because there are some who didn't get to see today.

I wouldn't be mad if you said a little prayer for me to get rid of this headache, and if you prayed that God would reveal some sweet ways to love.

As my friend Becky would say 'Happy Day!'

For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.” - 1 John 3:11
