Life, for the most part, is good.
One question on a "secret sister" form, however, has me pondering my life and what I enjoy. The question? "What would you consider a fun day?"
I had no idea what to write. And after an hour, I finally wrote something - but I'm still not pleased with it. Even now, I really don't have a good answer.
Oh, in the past, it would have been easy.
Twenty five? A day at an amusement park, most likely.
How about fifteen years in the past? At age thirty I probably wanted a day with Marc, maybe a whole-day date, with a movie, meal out, and maybe a few fun museums.
Ten years ago (in the midst of Marc's health issues), a fun day would have included a 12-hour nap.
But now? I really don't know. Have I lost my sense of what enjoyment is? Am I so caught up in my own rat race that I am blind to the possibilities of "fun?" Or, maybe my life is already so fun that I can't picture anything better. (Ummm...)
Regardless, God wants us to relish and enjoy our lives. We are to be filled with joy - live life abundantly.
"But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful." Psalm 68:3I'm still not sure if I've forgotten what fun is, or if my happiness in what I have has made me content enough that I needn't worry about it.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4
But I DO know one thing: my life is good, and even fun sometimes. And even in struggles, He allows me peace and joy (if not a bit of fun).
And that's a good thing.
What is YOUR idea of a fun day? Have your ideas in this matter changed as you've matured in years? in your faith?
