With my music on and my bible open, I sat down on my couch.
I started reading in Proverbs, and came across some highlighted areas from previous devotions. I read some of those areas, and got to "a happy heart makes the face cheerful..." - the beginning of Proverbs 15:13 - I sat and thought, now a days we are always so fixed on so much of what the world offers (more money, bigger everything, more of this, more of that) we forget that the "things" of this world don't matter in the end. Those things will never make us truly happy, or give us a real sense of joy.
I laid in bed the other night watching my husband sleep. I remember looking up and thanking God for this amazing man sleeping sweet next to me, for this beautiful growing baby in my tummy, and for family and friends that are always there no matter what. I clearly saw the things around me that truly matter, and it made my heart happy and full. I hope that you seek joy everyday in whatever you may do, and be thankful for what that day holds through the people around you that mean the most. I pray that your heart may be happy.
Love - Callie
