Reflect the Joy!

Last year my grandsons and I were talking about the Fruit of the Spirit when my then nine-year old grandson said he thinks of his poppa and I when he thinks of the word "joy"; my six and four year old grandsons agreed! This is one of the most wonderful things anyone has ever said to and about me!

While we certainly want our lives to reflect the love of God, reflecting the joy is extremely important. And, when we are people who show joy; who are quick to smile and laugh, who consistently greet our grandchildren with a smile on our face and a twinkle in our eyes, they will be pointed to God. Why wouldn't they want a life of joy? And, why wouldn't we want our grandchildren to not just see us as people who live joy, but to remember us as such! 

So, don't worry about those, "laugh lines" . . . they are a badge of honor . . . of the highest type. Wear them with joy.
