Life just happens so quickly! So fast, that I think I missed a few years with just a blink.
There is something about graduations, deaths, births, and milestones, to cause me to sit back- hard- and realize this:
Just when you are enjoying the most of life and and the benefits of His Joy… you see how much of life has already past, and how fast it went.
I am not one to sit and feel anxious, nor depressed over the pace of life, nor, am I one to dwell on a negative.
But, life is moving ….. and I am enjoying the fullnes of joy the Lord has given to me… so overwhelming so…
I had to blog about it.
Some day… when my daughters and sons are grown, and moving thru a fast-paced life of motions, and service, I hope they will find this post, and remember the daily JOYS God gives each one of us.
Where did that come from? I ask myself each day?
The twinkle in my husbands eye, as we are talking with our children and he sends his love across the room.
Just a twinkle.
My oldest sons walk into the room and hug me tight. Their toddler arms, now – turned strong and embracing.
Just a hug.
My oldest daughter and I just have to look at each other to have a mutual snicker. Over nothing. Just a look, a raised eyebrow, and a laugh. My daughter… almost a woman.
Just a laugh.
Where does that come from?
Hearing my toddlers talk about God, and His comfort between themselves. Not prompted. Just hearing them talk with casual toddler talk that he is there for them.
Hand-made cards from my girls on my pillow when I go to bed at night. Written with words of love and thankfulness. For simple things… like a good dinner, or teaching them at home.
Where did this come from…
A life designed by God, to be lived out in His timing. Created for me to glorify Him.. always.. and to experience the unexpected trials and joys that come along.
For both we have had. And both, I count all JOY!
