We're up in Zion and yesterday was so beautiful--52 degrees--we decided to check out one of the beaches on Lake Michigan (it's only a few blocks from the Treatment Center!). The lake had a lot of fog on it yesterday, but it didn't deter my excitement for being there.
My good friend, Cheryl Pollock, came to visit and we had the best time going to the Infini-tea tea room (check it out, www.infini-tea.net). I'm not a huge tea drinker but their tea was amazing! My favorite was a black tea, Toffee Almond Supreme--it was like a liquid candy bar (would you expect less from me?). :-) Cheryl and I raised our kids together for a season and we shared and encouraged one another in our spiritual journey. Such wonderful memories. I've loved reconnecting with her here!
I also love how God sprinkles joy in my life even in the unexpected places. A visit from someone, a sunny day, a note, a walk on the beach.
So what about you? Have you had unexpected joy arise at a time when you least expected it?
