Unexpected Joy


Every once in a while, some unexpected joy can come your way. It doesn't have to be anything big or monumental...it can be small, like a new green motorcycle on a Sunday afternoon, but it can make your whole day. If it has a kickstand on the side that makes it be able to stand by itself...well, that is a double blessing. A big thank you to the relatives that sent this my way!
Unexpected joys...what God gives us throughout our daily lives. Sometimes we recognize them, and sometimes we don't. My prayer... the ability to recognjze them, and to be thankful for them, whether they are tiny or more significant.

Well if that little face doesn't make you stop and take notice of our blessings, I'm not sure what could.

There is pure bliss in the eyes of a child...

I pray that I always recognize the unexpected joys. I had a few just today.

I know how this little guy feels.
As I said in my post this morning--
Mr. Ken and I were going to put up the Christmas lights since the weather was soooo nice.
I don't know that is is unexpected
but I do get great joy of seeing the lights on our house and when they ALL work I guess that could be the unexpected part.
We get so busy in our everyday lives that we miss these times.

Have a great Monday!
