Each of us encounters many sources of stress in each day of our life. It seems the older we get, the more we have to worry about and the less joy we have in our life. For me, I attempt to find joy in the little things. The last several months have been stressful for me but I find joy in spending time with family and friends. Last night I had the great joy of just sitting on the couch with my wife and holding her hand as we watched a movie. We have not done that in a long time. We both have been busy with life and we are at a place where we took the time to share some laughs together and just enjoy each others company.
Look for the little things that will bring a smile to your face. What is it that makes you smile and step back to enjoy the many great gifts the Lord has placed before us? Take some time this weekend, in all the craziness of life, and find something that will bring you a bit of joy. Those are the things to remember and treasure.
