A Fun Life

I was offended when someone told me I did not understand because my life was perfect and I always have fun. My first thought was, you have no idea! That afternoon I did a lot of talking to God and reflecting. I was upset because I had some heavy stuff going on and they knew it. People think I share everything but I keep a lot between God and I. I asked God not to let me be mad and you know what He did? He changed my whole perspective.

He reminded me no matter what my circumstances are I am to enjoy life. He gives us life and gives it to us abundantly. John 10: 10, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." While my heart was so heavy someone thought I had a perfect, fun life and that is ok. Perfect was a strong word and they were just frustrated but I do have a wonderful life and I have a fun life because I choose fun! I have always loved to laugh and have fun.

Every day is a gift and we should enjoy it! Do you like to see your children sad and ho hum or do you like to see them loving life? I believe God smiles when we are enjoying the life He gave us. Ecclesiastes 9: 7-9, "Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don’t skimp on colors and scarves. Relish life with the spouse you love Each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange For the hard work of staying alive. Make the most of each one!" (MSG)

I thanked God that while my heart was heavy I could show "fun" because I have joy in Him! I trust Him to take care of these things. My joy is the all knowing that He will work everything out in the perfect way at the perfect time! Thanks be to God! Enjoy life today!
