Bridging the Gap

“Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5)

When life throws you a curve, and joy is as far away as China, finding solace and renewal is on the agenda. But where can restoration be found?

The bridge between sadness and joy is often right before us. Yet until we realize  that the insignificant is actually quite significant, we won’t appreciate what we have. But once we learn the difference,  we’re on the right track.

Learn to embrace little things as they are  the beginnings of true happiness. All we need to do is look around, and then learn to appreciate what we have.

Then learn to relish God’s all of nature, and appreciate the fact that it was created for us to enjoy. Flowers, birds, and woodland creatures, although small, would all be missed if they no longer existed. Flowers, and multiplied varieties of plant life, would also be missed if no longer available for our enjoyment.

Even trees are essential as they bring shade and countless varieties of fruit for our consumption. But what if they no longer existed?

Learn to appreciate  nature, and those around us–neighbors we often ignore, little ones in our path, to even the aging population–all easily within our range, and worth taking the time to befriend. A little appreciation from others will then bring an added dimension of  joy that we need, and desire.
