But it’s hard to remember that, isn’t it? Well, at least it is for me.
Even if you are sick, it’s easier to find joy when life is all ice cream, sea shells, wine, and beautiful sunsets.
It’s not quite so easy when it’s goodbye, tears, storms, and burnt toast.
But rest in this knowledge: joy is here, right now.
Whether you are sipping cocktails by the sea, or waiting in an Emergency Room, you are not alone.
Whether your days are filled with constant pain, rambunctious toddlers, or contentious coworkers, you are known.
Whether you are battling cancer, or depression, or infertility, you are not forgotten.
Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you are doing, you are valuable.
Find joy in the remembering that you are His. Hear His voice in the crashing waves, in the crying baby, in the birdsong. We just have to listen.
My song of the day: Blessings by Laura Story
