Enjoying The Simple Things In Life

“A joyful heart is like good medicine” Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)

Hiking with friends, I had a sudden urge to stop and pick up some dandelions. I then recorded a mini-video for my grandkids in Indiana showing them their silly grandma blowing those dandelions until there were just stems left. In the process of blowing the dandelions, I got a lot of the furry stuff in my mouth and broke down in laughter. According to my daughter-in-law, the boys laughed really hard.

Sometimes the simple things are the best things we can give to others, however, we often forego the pleasure of doing them. We miss out on blessing someone else with a belly laugh because we keep thinking that just the things we find in store shelves bring joy into other people’s hearts. When was the last time you had a belly laugh? When was the last time you remember sharing something ordinary with someone else that made them laugh or smile?

There will always be plenty of time to be serious in life, but it does not have to be a 24/7 endeavor. A little break from seriousness here and there will do wonders for the soul.

Whether you choose to record a silly video of yourself for your children or grandchildren, or call someone up and chat for a bit, or go out for coffee with a good friend just to enjoy their company – make those little moments count and choose to alienate the serious things for a little bit. Enjoy the moment. Live it!!! And do laugh a little. You will be amazed at how healing it can be.

“Dear Lord, thank You for creating this beautiful earth for us to enjoy; thank You for all things, big and small, and for the joy they bring into our hearts.”

For His Glory
