Mom’s have the power to find anything. Just ask the kid that lost his toy or the husband that swears he left his tool “right there on the counter”. Christ has the ability to find anyone too, the difference is we have the choice to follow once found.
Stories are there to bring out emotions, to teach and to help us find faith in humanity. How they are told to us helps us to chose how we want to listen. What is the basis behind the story? What can we find for ourselves from the story?
Once upon a time life was simpler but not easier. We had less of the world and more time to ourselves. As kids the most important thing to do was to not get caught being bored. What a joy today to chose a simpler path, unplug and find what’s important.
I love when little bits of joy are sprinkled into my life. I love it more when they seem to be spontaneous even if they have been planned. A smile from a child, fresh baked brownies, a good talk with family. All are little bits of joy.
Finding your joy and even finding something you thought you would never find is amazing. When the unexpected happens and joy is found even in the darkness to find this is miraculous.
Finding the Joy Breaks sounds hard at times especially when life seems out of control and always busy. It’s at these times when even a sunset seen on the way home can be joyful. Don’t forget that joy doesn’t have to be just in the big things.
Joy Comes even when you feel like you have lost it. The world, life, family, work, negative words can all steal joy, but only for a little bit. Joy comes in the moments, in the self worth, in the knowledge of who you are in Christ
When we decide to be nice, spread joy and choose the attitudes we have, we are more like a little honeybee than the fly that chooses to stick by the decay and garbage. It’s not hard really, to choose joy, to choose to smile, but it is a choice all the same. So what do you want to be? A bee or a fly?
All too often we work to not break down, to stay strong, but when someone is there to break through our defenses, it’s a healing salve to our souls
The Fickle Heart, so hard to follow and know who you are. Our titles, our thoughts, our feelings cause so much confusion. Finding your inner joy and peace is the only real way to work through the ever changing heart.
