Choice of Joy

Think back to past situations in your life and think about the ones that flash by the fastest.  Throughout your life situations come and go and your spirit handles each differently.  I remember sad sad times when Terry's mom had a aneurysm explode in her head and our lives changed in an instant.  It was right before our wedding...about 20 years ago.  It was a time of hospitals, doctors, tubes, heart monitors etc and very little time to smile.   I remember a day of love and laughter when we did get married... and my dad walked me down the aisle of the church I was confirmed in,  and then flash forward 14 years to his diagnosis with Alzheimers.  Love and joy and back to shock and fear.  

Our lives are filled with mountains and valleys. If I had not been connected to God through all of this I would not have journeyed through the painful times with a knowing of optimism and acceptance. Connecting with God allows emotions to flow through me and those sorrowful times are replaced with comfort of His love and the presence of pure grace.

Choose Joy and bind your heart to Him.

"The kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." Romans 14:17
