Joy

bes tday ever

Tuesday was my grandsons 1st birthday.

This picture was taken Sunday at his early birthday party. Every time I look at this picture I smile and laugh out loud.

What I see in this picture is joy. Unrestrained this is awesome, I can’t believe this is happening, this is the best,

Joy.

My wife suggested a great title for this picture would be

“Best Day Ever”

I agree.

I had the honor of preaching my first funeral on Tuesday which ironically was also my grandsons official birthday. On the same day we honored a saint who has gone home and celebrated a life just beginning, a precious little one, a gift from God.

A few weeks ago I wrote about seasons, how scripture reminds us there is a time for everything. The meaning of that was not as clear to me then as it is now.

A time to live a time to die….

So I made a promise to myself on Tuesday that in this season of my life I will enjoy the gifts God has given me. Every day, every moment. With the same exuberant, unrestrained, best day ever joy that I see in my grandson when this picture was taken.

You should do the same.

John 10:10I came to give life with joy and abundance”.
