“When there’s a tear in your eye, and joy in your heart, that’s when you know life’s worth living.”
Several days ago, I was on our deck by the pool playing cards with my wife Sandy. The breeze was blowing, it was about 74° and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. We were listening to Pandora (Seal) and having a glass of wine. She was kicking my butt at gin—and thoroughly enjoying it. I mean I was losing every game. One of our granddoggies, Cody was visiting and was sleeping on the doormat by one of the doors.
And all of a sudden, emotion started to rush up, just like water flows up from a natural spring. I was aware of how much God has blessed me—is blessing me. I was totally in the moment and the beauty of it all. And the tears began to flow. Quietly. Just between me and God, and the beauty of this life…
And I thought, “When there’s a tear in your eye, and joy in your heart; that’s when you know life is worth living.”
Very worth living!
As you read this, I wish the same for you today!
