Can you taste the joy? Our five year old granddaughter Anne Marie lives just a few blocks away, so we are very fortunate to be able to see her quite a bit and spend quality time with her. Several months ago, she spent the evening with us, and we took her to Chick-Fil-A for dinner. And they just happened to be serving their annual peppermint milk shakes. Can you remember the last time you enjoyed a shake this much? Anne lives in the moment and makes the very most of it. I think that is one of the reasons we love to watch children so much, they know the secret to happiness. Their feelings are totally transparent and there for anyone to see, and they do not worry about the past or the future. A while ago, little Ella asked me for something, and I told her "later". Her reply was both innocent and wise: "Ginny, later is a long time." It sure is. Milkshakes are great, but here is the best taste in the world.
"Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him." Psalm 34:8
