The joy comes…..

Its morning the last week of school

we enter our great outdoors in the front yard

I retreat away on the porch with bible in hand

the morning sunrays bathing us in warmth

This little man just got this new bike

I told him that He was getting too big for his tricycle

and that we would be getting him a new bike soon

His answer was always…..WHEN?

For two weeks he asked when …. busy days

school, church, dad working long hours…

and he waited THEN ONE DAY I spotted this red bike at a garage sale

and it fit well, I called his dad and he said go for it

This little man was so happy smiling from ear to ear

clapping his hands saying

“ See Mom! See! When you wait patiently and with a good attitude you get excitement…”

The joy comes….in the morning

As soon as we got that bike home, he took his tricycle next door to the

little girl that lives there and gave that tricycle away!

God gave and he this little man naturally let go of the old and embraced the new

This morning he sang in the sunshine with arms wide open over and over

I LOVE THE SUN!….I LOVE THE SON!
