What did you do today? How did you spend your time? Regardless of what happened, when you reflect on the day's events can you see moments of grace?
To me this painting of little Franky represents Joy Breaks. One of my favorite prayers to pray for my family and friends is for them to receive joy breaks from our God. He's the ultimate gift giver! He knows everything about each one of us, and He loves us.
Joy Breaks come in many shapes and sizes. For me, my heart swells with gratitude when I get a warm hug from a friend or when someone takes the time to listen to what's happening in my life and encourages me along my journey. I love to dine outside on patios and porches. I love dark chocolate covered cherries from See's Candy. Like Franky, I love taking a nice warm bath with plenty of bubbles, and I love a simple peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwich.
May your life be full of God's beautiful gifts. May you experience His joy breaks. May your heart know how much He loves you. May you know the Gift Giver. May you find your strength and purpose in Him. Where's the Bear Paw?
Share your favorite joy breaks with me in the comments section. I would love to read them.
