Finding joy in the little things…When I look at the smile on this boys face as he sips full strength juice it makes my heart smile. As I sat on my bench watching him I began to think about all the things we already have, all that Jesus has already done, to bring a smile to our faces.
It seems that most of the time we tend to focus on the things we don’t have. We plan, we strive, we set goals, and we work hard. All good things! It keeps us moving forward, but it also keeps our focus on things we don’t have yet. And if we aren’t careful we become dissatisfied with where we are.
Let’s not forget to remember all the things He has already done for us. It is so good to stop and look and think and smile. Smile at the gifts He has given us.
