A Little JOY While Living In The Present
Serious times? Have you been overwhelmed? Are you looking back and having regrets? What about having some JOY! today. Since this is the day the LORD has made, what happened to letting ourselves have joy in it? We don't go back and fix the past, but we gain a healthy perspective in it, and we learn and allow our hearts to be changed if that will benefit our relationships with others and God. We can't live in the future, either, whether that is a fantasy or a projecting of the past onto it. Today is the gift we have. Why not enjoy it, or experience a bit of others who do? Below are some links that have been shared with us or ones we have found that express people taking a moment to be joyful or content today. Even if things are up in the air, and there are things that need your attention, how about a moment to be grateful to God for what is, and what is possible today? Stop, rest, breathe. Today is truly a gift. It is not a sin to enjoy it. But it often requires a choice to do so.
In a few short years, what is possible? Start entering back into life today? This young one is not just playing, he is enjoying
That other stuff CAN wait a bit, you don't have to have everything perfectly tied down and fixed to take a moment in a frame of mind where you can be happy in a piece of today.
