Hi my friends,
I hope all is well today. Thanks for coming by for our 54th TGI Saturdays blog hop. What an achievement to be proud of. I love it when you come for a visit. Though I’d love it if you’d talk to me more (comment, why don’t ya). Thanks so much for taking the time to share your great posts with us.
The day I’m writing this post is actually January 23rd and the snow is falling outside. I’m writing this post so early because this is the first of 3 1/2 months of TGI Saturdays pre-scheduled posts. Why am I pre-scheduling so many post in advance. Well, the reason is because I’m soon going to have another baby, a new addition to our family of six. Soon we’ll have our own 7th Heaven -lol (did you watch that show?).
I’m calling these pre-scheduled post “Saturday Inspirations,” the purpose of these posts are to inspire, encourage and uplift. So I hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment during this time of pre-scheduled posts. I’ll be checking my comments as often as I can and it will be a way for us to still connect.
I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.
Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 (ESV)
Sometimes we have those “Ah” moments, those times in life when you feel a genuine surge of joy and happiness in your spirit. For a small moment worries, concerns, challenges, obstacles; their images all fade into a blurred background and all you see is beauty, color, radiance. You are reminded of why we live, why we fight, why we never give-up. We grab those moments and we hold on to them in our memories and keep them there to help keep the light shinning bright inside of us when we are having a rough season. Those little nuggets of happiness triggered by a sincere smile, the sound of laughter, heaven on your taste buds, music to your ears, an amazing sight, an awesome adventure, a favorite thing. Get my drift. It could be something big or something so small, but the joy it brings is not small at all. I wish you many of those little nuggets in your lifetime. I hope you enjoy my poem.
Little Nuggets of Happiness
At this moment I feel complete
At this moment I can hear my heart beat
At this moment I feel blessed
A little nugget of true happiness
Dear Lord, help me preserve
this feeling in my heart wherever I go
So when times are rough and times are tough
And I’m feeling a bit low
I can hold on to my nugget of happiness
And ignite my spiritual glow
Help me Lord to always remember to let this happiness show
And through my entire being let its essence flow

Peace, Love and Blessings to you.
What brings you joy?
