The Greatest Things are Freely Giving

“Thank God, the greatest things are freely giving; life, love, joy, smiles, hugs, inner peace, blessings, family, friends, nature….!”

WHEEEE!

There are times on our journey through this life that just call for a good squeal of delight.  Sunday afternoon we decided to go out to a local museum to walk around and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.  The drive is not a long one but does include one of those wonderful roller coaster roads we have in Northeast Oklahoma.  I reached the crest of the first big hill and as the car started down the hill that roller coaster excitement just took over and out it came — a gleeful WHEEEE!  Bob even giggled.

Life is not all toil and trouble, work and heartache.  The journey of life can actually be a fun one if we will grab onto those joyful moments as they come our way.  Go ahead and  squeal if you want.  You might just make God’s day.
