Change is a Constant

It’s crazy how change is more of a constant than, well change. Looking at change with “joy lenses” will make whatever is changing better.

Joy Abounding

Joy comes from above. It is so fun to watch in a playful puppy and it is so comforting to know it will be there in the hardest of days. Joy is really abounding.

Being Patient Joyfully

Being Patient is hard enough without adding the joyfully part. This means letting go of what we think life should be like and giving to others what they may not deserve. This means doing it with joy and without judgement and resentment

Finding Joy in the Simple. Staying in bed a little longer on a Saturday, listening to the laughter of kids playing, knowing that the work that is before you is not what rules your life as long as you are constantly looking to the finish line and Christ.
