Unexpected Joy

Last night, I attended an author lecture at Concordia College in Bronxville, NY.

Dr. Priscilla Gilman was sharing about her book: The Anti-Romantic Child: A Memoir of Unexpected Joy.   Her presentation was engaging, informative and uplifting.  She reminded me of the importance of recognizing each child as an individual with strengths and challenges.

Her use of the words,  unexpected joy, really hit home with me. I need to be sure to be on the lookout for joy in unexpected places, people and situations.  

God wants us to be happy. Sometimes you have to just look a little harder to find those pockets of happiness.
