Enjoy the joy

Yesterday was the big inauguration day....

While I'm not the top person to come to for things political, I do know to watch something when its a historical moment.

So I had my computer on & watched all the hoopla of the swearing in... & watched as the Presidential box was filling up with pop stars.... Katy Perry, John Meyer, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Kelly Clarkson... how did James Taylor fit in there?  Groovy.

I will say, this picture going around made me laugh though.

(Some people never change... haha)

The thing that strikes me are the Inaugural Balls...

All the beauty & glamour & celebration...

I love seeing these men, who are just men, thrown into these huge roles as leader of the country... but for that moment, they are happy & enjoying this time.

Look at the smiles

... for Obama, this was before a school of kindergarden children were shot for no reason
... for Bush, this was before planes crashed into the World Trade Towers
... for Clinton, this was before he knew a young lady named Monica
... for Regan, this was before an attempted assassination was made on his life

Big events all happen to each of these men... but in this moment, dancing with their wives, they have no idea what lies ahead for them & for the country they are in charge of....

So when I saw The President & his wife dancing last night, I just wondered what lays ahead for them in the next 4 years....

But you see them enjoying the moment & it just reminded me to do the same....

live in today
dont worry about tomorrow

if happiness or joy comes to you today, smile & take it in

Give your entire attention to what God is doing RIGHT NOW & don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.  God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
-Matthew 6:34


  1. Excellent point! That's definitely how I try to live my life...in the moment, knowing that God will take care of the rest.

  2. Never thought of it like that. Good post.

  3. That was an A-HA moment for me. Great point!! Thank you, thank you for the reminder that you never know what will be.

  4. Okay, I will. Now get off my back already!
    Love ya! m.
