Find joy, Eagle in nest

Tell Me Something Good

Find joy, Eagle in nest
Sometimes you have to look harder to find joy, like spying a baby eagle in a nest.

My prayer list keeps growing longer.  Sorrows increase.  Friends and family are faced with Covid 19 exposure, suicide of a child, job loss, massive flooding with loss of home, loss of work, and separation from family members with special needs.

Yet, when praying for these sorrows, I hear, “Let not your hearts be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27)  And I add to my list…

Gratitude for safe delivery of a new grandson, work for most of my family members, health for most of my friends and family, progressive surgery recovery for a family member, gradual recovery of my own strength after illness, a friend in remission, blooming gardens and eagles outside my window.

Sometimes you have to look harder to find joy.  Like spotting a baby eagle in its nest, joy is here, if you take the time to search.

Tell me something good.

  1. Grateful for something I write it on a slip of paper and toss it in. On New Year’s, I read them all! What a joy to recount the year’s blessings!

  2. A stranger once told me that he keeps a journal in which he writes the three best things that happened to him that day. Somedays, he said, are easier to write than others, but he also tries not to repeat the lists too often. Somedays, he said, are a struggle to come up with an answer. On one of my worst days, I will never forget my three things… I had a cup of tea, time for a quick shower, and managed to eat dinner. It’s always good to count our blessings!
