Laughter is good for the soul!
it is important for us to enjoy the life that God has given us...

Its a true fact that life is short....!
You are not promised tomorrow (Proverbs 27:1), we don't know what tomorrow will hold... "Don't worry about tomorrow, let tomorrow worry about its self..." Life being so short and it goes by so fast. I guess I truly didn't realize how fast life was going by until I had kids, now I see that they are growing right before my eyes!

Ashley and I took the boys to Carowinds this past weekend, We have taken Austin many times but this was Preston's first trip to the local theme park. Both of them were filled with joy and excitement to ride rides and see all the entertainment that surrounded us. Both boys were able to ride several rides and to be able to enjoy many areas of the park, we had lunch in Harmony Hall with a live Snoopy Show it was truly a Great Day! 

Now that I have given you my family "slide show" of our trip... I want you to understand an important fact that we and including me, often forget we must take time for family and we must enjoy the life that God has given us! (Ecclesiastes 8:15)

There will be many things that come your way that you will regret, we need to learn to LIVE and LEARN... learn from your mistakes and move on... Life is to short to dwell on these things and you can't let them steal your joy in life! DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF!

Focus on God and the Life that HE has blessed you with!


Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)

22 A cheerful heart is good medicine,
    but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 27:1 (NIV)

27 Do not boast about tomorrow,
    for you do not know what a day may bring.

Ecclesiastes 8:15 (NIV)

15 So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 11:8 (NIV)

However many years anyone may live,
    let them enjoy them all.
But let them remember the days of darkness,
    for there will be many.
    Everything to come is meaningless.
