Enjoy the life God has given you!

“…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…” Ecclesiastes 3:4

One evening I sat at the dinner table with my husband and children and we were about to play a game called Chubby Bunny. It’s when you try to see who can fit the most marshmallows in your mouth while saying chubby bunny each time. Before we began, I told everyone I would win because my mouth is the biggest. My husband just stared at me. He just knew he had me beat. So we began. One marshmallow, then two. My son put two in his mouth and he was done. My daughter fit three, then gagged, and said “I’m out!” My husband was able to stuff six in his mouth before calling it quits. I reached seven, the most of everyone, and it was hilarious. Trying to say chubby bunny with a mouth full of marshmallows sounded more like hubba hubba. But I did it! After I did my little happy dance, we looked at each other and said, “That was fun!”

My sister, in your pursuit of God’s will for your life, know that it is His will that you enjoy your life and the people He has placed in your w. Enjoy your husband. Enjoy your children. Enjoy your friendships and every moment God has given you.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for the gift of life. It is precious. I ask that you help me to enjoy the life you’ve given me. Help me to enjoy every moment and the people you’ve placed in my life. Let me take nothing for granted. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
