It is so easy to get into the state of being overwhelmed. A phone call can put us there, a long week can put us there, kids can put us there. Where do we go for our strength? Do we try and get through life on our own? Joy can be the strength we need.
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 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?
Camping with family can be both chaotic and peaceful depending on the time of day. Camping is also good for the soul, especially when you are enjoying the company around you.
