Joy Stealer

It's kind of funny how you can be blessed so much during a single week and still feel joyless and depressed. The moments of happiness seem to be thrashed away easier than they're brought.

See, I was blessed with several packages and fun things that God provided. Air soft guns, a second guitar hero guitar and a new DVD player. These where provided without any problem and outside our budget. Blessings. But then comes the Joy Stealer. Crying baby. Upset tummy. Work frustrations. Cold weather. Next thing you know you feel like the blessings of before are nothing and pointless.

How do you combat the Joy Stealer? How do you stay happy, even when you're feeling extremely depressed and downtrodden?
