Have you had your JOY JUICE today? Share some with your friends.
Don’t you love to run into old friends and have fun catching up on what’s been going on with them? This is such a joy-blessing! To see old friends and find out what God is doing in their lives brings a smile to my face, joy to my heart and pep to my step! So often it’s the unexpected meetings that bring a special flavor of joy.
As a retired school teacher, I receive MUCH delight in seeing my former students! Since I taught Kindergarten and elementary school for many years, you can imagine how much those “little students” have grown and changed. But many of them still remember fun times we shared….and so do I. You see, age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship. Senior citizens can love children and young people…and vice versa. I think it’s awesome when we choose to have friends of all ages. It kinda balances us out…..Young people learning from the wisdom of the more mature; and older people being taught new things by the youth! The bottom line is this….we all matter and we can all can make a difference.
The scripture in Psalm 118:24 reminds us…. “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Let’s ask God to give us opportunities today to share His love with friends…old and new. When we “seize the day” that the LORD has made for us…..and choose to rejoice and be glad in it….we will find countless opportunities to make a difference in people’s lives.
Be a friend who shares joy with all ages!
