Dear Honey Run Friends,
Early this morning I was driving to Columbus, and I had the joy of watching the sun rise over the fields. The sunshine filled me with such gratitude. As I was basking in the new light of the day, I began thinking about the most beautiful things in life. Some joys that come to mind were sunrises and sunsets, an afternoon talking with friends or family, the love of our family and friends, fellowship with church members, a walk in the forest, the view of the mountains, the ocean, the desert, a recently baptized person, a sleeping baby, watching animals frolic in the pasture, and feeling the warmth of the sun on my body.
These things have something in common – they are all free. These are gifts from God to bless our days and give us joy amidst life’s challenges. I hope that you have a moment to capture your free joy today and find a way to work this into your daily life. Life is hard, and if we are not careful and purposeful, we can allow our circumstances to snuff away the joy that has been so lovingly and freely given to us.
Your joyful-to-watch-the-sunrise Innkeeper,
