There are so many little things that bring joy. For instance when I returned to my rental after a day full of work yesterday, I found this is the parking lot where I left my vehicle:
I was so excited. Finally, after years of traveling to Maine I was going to be able us the scrapper thingy they provide for you in the car. ( By the way, that thing is in the car in the middle of the summer!). But yes, I was going to be able to scrape off the windows of my car. To most Mainers, that is a pain – an unwelcome sign of winter. But to me, on this day, it was a source of joy. A simple event, but a one that I cherished.
You probably have things like this in your life as well. Most days, these are over whelmed by the trials and mundaneness of life. Today, challenge yourself to find those little things that bring you joy, cherish those, and give thanks for those. And if you don’t mind – add a comment to this post, and share those moments with all of us.
And I will help you will one – just to get to you started. The Good News from Acts 13.
32“We tell you the good news: What God promised our fathers 33he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm:
” ‘You are my Son;
today I have become your Father.34The fact that God raised him from the dead, never to decay, is stated in these words:
” ‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.’ 35So it is stated elsewhere:
” ‘You will not let your Holy One see decay.’
36“For when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers and his body decayed. 37But the one whom God raised from the dead did not see decay.
38“Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses.
Joy Joy Joy!
