Let me tell you dear friends....you can really experience a wonderful feeling when you take the time to enjoy the small things in life!
Have you ever (really) taken the time....to just sit back and to actually notice the character that is built into one of those huge fireworks?
This past evening...we were out watching a huge fireworks show, with a group of friends, and there was this one particular explosion of beauty that caught my eye....I felt like I was "dancing with the stars"
Yesterday, I was watching Tori as she was eating a slice of watermelon. Her unique way of enjoying the sweetness of every bite, was absolutely joyous! Before each bite, she would spend a few moments, examining where she could find that next perfect, mouth watering moment of pleasure!
At dinner last night, I actually took the time to notice the smiles on each of our friends faces....Beautiful smiles, that spoke to my heart, as to why I love every single one of them. Each friend displaying their own personal assurance that they too, were enjoying the company that surrounded them.
I must admit, that in my daily life, I am not always paying attention to the unlimited number of simple pleasures that are right in front of me.....My mind is usually capturing those things that cause anxiety or stress...
Maybe this is the beginning for me....the beginning of freedom of this busy lifestyle that we live...The beginning of learning to stop and smell the roses as I make my journey through life....
Make this a day that is full of experiences and pleasure....and may we never forget to give God the Glory that He so deserves....
Hugs to you all
