Dave & I love the small things in life. I think this is one reason why we are so joyful. It doesn’t take a lot for us to have fun, to laugh, or to smile. Actually, to be honest, it really doesn’t take anything.
When we first started dating, we did not have much money (not much has changed ;)) so we had to get a little creative about our dates. Our favorite thing to do at PBA was to get slurpies from 7-Eleven, then park the car in front of the intracoastal and talk. Another thing we love is to play catch outside. One time we got this awesome frisbee at the dollar store and we played with it for weeks. But honestly, Dave and I can just sit in silence and still be having fun :).
I think it is easy sometimes to get caught up in life and all the STUFF it has to offer, and sometimes we forget about the simple things in life. Dave and I try not to forget this. We sometimes even say to each other, “oh… its the little things” and if one of us is upset or even mad, all we do is make each other laugh and everything goes away (its our secret medicine!)
& also, our time here is only temporary- so why not make the most of it and shine God’s light always.
Psalm 118:24 – “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Proverbs 17:22 – “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
Psalm 97:11-12 – “Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.”
Stay joyful, pay attention to the little things in life, & laugh- a lot (it works).
