a thankful heart

a few of the love and joys of my life
Because it was never promised that we would go through life without difficulty, pain, hardship and without tears...we are however, promised unconditional love. Love when we feel we aren't deserving, love when we're lonely or too weary to show it in return and even love when we're angry, hurt or resentful. 
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 3:4-7
With my heart now comforted I think I'll sink back in my favorite chair, under a cozy throw and enjoy a few more sips of hot tea. Discovering joy through out the journey, no matter how rocky the road, is a priceless find!
