Rather than allow ourselves to get caught up with the hustle and bustle, let us purpose ourselves to look for the joy God sends our way everyday in ordinary moments; things we would otherwise miss if we were not paying attention.
They are all around us - little nuggets of joy, pebbles on the rocks, small moments of blessing - just waiting to be gathered up. Pocket-size joys, like an unexpected smile or a kind gesture. A quiet morning with an old friend.
Joy is a choice. Either we choose to dwell on the negatives or we stop and look for the joy. There is joy in the journey, And most remarkable of all, we are loved by the Father. What greater joy could there be?
