Little Thoughts

Life is beautiful…

-when the sun smiles down as I walk barefoot through the grass.

-when the smell of baking bread floats from the oven.

-when I cherish the moment and enjoy a bike ride with my family.

-when a call from my man in Iraq brightens my day and warms my heart.

-when we both get excited about the countdown until his homecoming.

-when I realize that once again I need to focus on my Jesus so that I can walk on water instead of sinking below the waves of life.

-when “the peace of God, which passes all understanding” is within my heart.

-when I understand that trials are a part of life and they do not necessarily mean we have wandered outside of God’s path for us, but that He is right beside us bringing good from the difficulties.

-when I see that life, rather than being a fearful unknown, is a joyful adventure.
