As I looked at the odometer on my 2006 car, I realized that there are nearly 162,000+ miles on it. I was driving back to Oklahoma to help out my mom. While it wasn’t an exciting drive or a full onslaught of Sunday morning praise and worship, I found myself rejoicing.

I have no car payments.

Good tires.

A fantastic air conditioner.

The ability to drive.

Gas money.

A cell phone that helped me navigate Dallas-area rush-hour traffic.

Roadside assistance.

A Braums’ chocolate shake.

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! 

Philippians 4:4, NKJV

I don’t deserve it. Yet, I am blessed. And I am grateful. Rejoice! ❤
