My friend, Emma, and I spent the day together last week. There was a wonderful old road close to our little town that took you back to the Old South. Someone, many years ago, planted trees along the highway, and these trees have grown up into a canopy of loveliness. I wanted to get a picture of it, so I said, "Let's take our cameras!" Here we were standing out in the middle of the road pointing our cameras, giggling like young girls and just having fun.
Yesterday I was reading from Isaiah 55:12, "For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you and the trees of the field will clap their hands." Joy is simple---quiet times with a dear friend, good conversation, and finding the beauty in God's creation.
