Sometimes it gets a little hectic at the office of Joni and Friends.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Sometimes it gets a little hectic at the office of Joni and Friends. Like the other day, I was in a meeting, then got pulled out for a radio interview. Then, I met with a tour group and then off to another meeting. It was one crazy day! I was so glad when Ken came to pick me up that afternoon. As he secured my wheelchair in the van, I heaved a sigh, “Ken, you wouldn’t believe it, first it was this, then it was that, then it was something else.” He didn’t say anything. I rattled on, then finally asked, “Well… don’t you have anything to say?” He gave a knowing smile, “Well Joni, you’re not bedridden, are you? No broken legs, no pneumonia, right?” Bang, he got me. It was a good reminder of what’s important in life. Look, we may have busy days, but Psalm 109 says to give “repeated thanks to the Lord.” And we do have much to be thankful for, don’t we?!
