Scripture and a Snapshot

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
     Have you ever done something that brought joy to someone else and then discovered your own joy was multiplied? Today was a family day. The kids participated (and did well!) in 4H shooting sports, we visited with friends, then we headed home for a quiet evening of watching Dr. Who. But our plans changed. When we were about ten miles from home, my husband slowed the truck down for what turned out to be someone's pet Pomeranian way out of place walking in the middle of a bridge. No other traffic was on the road at the time, so my daughter got out, called the dog to her, and then we spent the next two hours searching for her owner. We finally reunited them, and tears still flowed. Tears of joy are a beautiful thing! During the search, we drove on lovely country roads, visited with many neighbors, and thoroughly enjoyed our time together. Now we are back home, still deciding if we are too tired for tv, and filled with joy from our happy day together.
