Sunshiny Days

Life has been feeling rather like this lately:

It has been a long while since I've had so much joy, and I realize the danger in it at times.  God has certainly blessed me through many earthly circumstances lately, but I know the joy that comes from our circumstances is fleeting.

While I am soaking up these sunshiny days in my heart, I am also reminding myself that my only lasting joy comes from Christ.  When troubles come again, and they most certainly will, I can look to Him as my ultimate source of happiness and hope.

Here's to the sunshine while it lasts!

Chelsea, you did have some rough times....I am glad to see that some great times are coming your way too!

I needed to hear this. So often, I go through life holding my breath just waiting for the next bad thing because I know that nothing lasts. That is, nothing EXCEPT what I have in Christ. In Him I have a joy and a peace that are better than anything else. Thanks for the reminder and the encouragement!

Here's to a great weekend!
