Happiness is definitely an aspect at the root of each one of us, whether we care about it or not. Our lives tend to reflect if we are happy or not. Anyone who knows me knows exactly what makes me happy… God. ❤
Watching 32 people be baptized in the river was truly the highlight of my day yesterday. Lord willing, I will blog about that soon. There are many ways and people He uses to make me happy, and to get through times when I am not so unhappy. Writing, music, books, movies, sermons, hymns, and even quiet times are just a few things He uses to cheer and to comfort me. Friends, family, church family, Facebook friends, WordPress Friends, and even complete strangers can be a genuine whisper from God.
Favorite things can be a day or the Blue Ridge Parkway. So many people travel so far to see moments of what are our backroads. Whether driving with the windows down, wind in my hair, hand hanging out, just enjoying such a beautifully feeling, or taking walks along the roadside, the bridge, or just looking out over the viewing areas. Such beauty. What a special pleasure God has given us.
I have the privilege quite often to have those favorite things together… riding with my delightful son up to park, and just sit and talk, or just sit and listen and watch. Sometimes I go take a walk across the bridge while he spends his own quiet time with the Lord.
