Joy in the Small Things



Throughtout each day I work hard to cultivate my joy, which comes only from God within me, and is nurtured by taking note of all the gifts of beauty that I come across during my daily repetitive work and this joy gives me strength to get through even the hardest times.

Warm wishes, Tonya

  6. Yes, yes- slowing down and noticing the beauty in the simple things. . .there would be more peace and joy and thankfulness in our world. Instead, for many life has become so complicated that they do not recognize it and spend so much time unhappy and under stress!
    As always, thank you for a heart warming message, Tonya!
