The Simple Things

"Every day is a good day. Just some days are better
than others," as my dear friend Deloris says.
Today was a better than others day. I started off the
morning by taking our Young Believers to the park
for a picnic. It was a beautiful day. The children's
laughter filled the playground. Their eyes were wide
as they fed the ducks. Their little fingers were yellow
from eating cheez puffs. They picked flowers and gave
them to me. They got dirty and sweaty and still
smelled like only little children can smell. They gave
hugs that surrounded you as if you were being hugged
by a giant. Children are indeed one of God's greatest
After the picnic, I came home to a house full of my
family. Eric, Holly, Brent and their families were all
getting ready to go to Disney for the day. What a joy
to walk in the door and be greeted by grandchildren
running up to hug you. What a joy it was to see all of
my grown children and their wives and children
spending the day together.
Sometimes it's the simple things in life that bring us
the most joy.
Thank you Lord for the simple things in my life that
make it so abundant!
