All the days of the oppressed are wretched,
       but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
– Proverbs 15:15

The family and I are heading to the airport in minutes.

I choose joy today. As I choose joy, I experience the blessings of feasting without any cost to my self-esteem, my spiritual sensitivity, my stomach! Praising God, giving gratitude, being positive with my family–no matter what trials we may face on our trip–even being friendly with the grumpy workers at the airport, all of these fill my soul like a continual feast fills my stomach and keeps me full. This kind of fullness, though, is the kind that truly satisfies! No stomach aches at all!

I choose joy! I choose God’s continual feast for my soul!

How about you? 🙂 What will you focus on today? What will you “magnify” or make big? Will you join me in choosing to have a cheerful heart? 🙂
