It comes in a variety of ways, from many things. The true source of real joy being Jesus. Yet I do feel that He allows joy to enter our lives through many different mediums because of Him. When you have Jesus, you can find the light in all situations.
I'm not going to be talking about anything dark and depressing today, although His joy can overshadow that in amazing ways. Today, I'm just talking about hilarity. Finding the laughter in moments that could be frustrating or annoying.
The joys of moving.
The hassle of unpacking, finding places for everything...sleeping on the floor because your bed hasn't arrived. Sleeping on an air mattress because your frame arrived without a mattress.
And then getting this in the mail when you were told it was your mattress:
Um....does this look like a mattress to you? Seriously, Amazon? Do you actually think I can sleep on that?
I'm finding moving to be a most hilarious adventure. I am really enjoying it. I wasn't expecting this insanity to be a part of my moving experience, but I am glad that it is. Laughter is a good thing. I don't want to even imagine what my life would be like if I didn't have laughter, if I couldn't enjoy the silly happenings of life.
Even so, I am going to be so very happy when I finally have a bed!
In the meantime...I'll keep watching for those moments that I can find joy. They're everywhere, so long as you keep your eyes open. :D
