Still my joy? I don't think so!

Wow!  What a busy day! 

Last week, my office got a brand new server.  Out with the old and in with the new.  However, some of the old was "supposed" to be transferred over. 

I do the book keeping and when I went to reconcile bank statements and pay some bills today, the past three months of Quick Books was gone.  All gone!  They stopped at May. 

At first I was so mad that I had to re-enter everything.  But then I remembered that this is life.  I didn't let the devil steal my joy.  I didn't let the devil convince my that this had ruin my day, when all my hard work had to be done again. 

What a blessing that I have a job.  What an even bigger blessing that I have a brain and the knowledge to fix the problem. Yes, I had to re-enter everything.  But what else did I really have to do today.  Usually, not much.  So, today was a little busier than most.  Big deal. This was a minor problem that didn't need a major fix.   Thank you Lord for helping me get through it, and thank you for dwelling within me and allowing me to realize that.

No temper tantrum, here.  Yea me! 

James 1:2-4  ---When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives, don't resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends! Realize that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the quality of endurance.
