Summer--Day 37........Joy in the journey......

My kids often make me wonder why we as adults do not find joy in the journey. They find joy in the simple things of life.  Joy in watching a bug or a butterfly or skipping down the sidewalk.  They find joy in a package of socks given to them by their Nanny. Joy...........such a wonderful thing.  They don't hold back when showing their joy......they let it float free without reservation.  Their laughter floating up like a melody on the wind.  Their giggles sweet and pure and full of life..........such a blessing and a lesson.

Jenny even found joy in folding her new socks together all by herself.

Lord, help me to remember to find joy in the journey in the little things in life.  Help me to remember to laugh over things as simple as folding socks and appreciate that I can fold those socks all by myself.  Thank you for all your blessings on me, you are a wonderful and faithful God and I love You and am so thankful for the evidence of Your presence in my every day life. Amen.
