The joy of just being
Is certainly joy enough
But the joy of being in Switzerland
Is a joy that’s hard to beat – it’d be tough.
While friends and family back home
In California and Montana are roasting
We were enjoying comfy mid-seventies
And lovely meals and yummy wine toasting
We were having ham with salad & sausage
At De & Andrés wonderful chalet
I came back to our room to post
And left Bob to finish dessert, but hey…
There were two girls outside
Hunkered under umbrellas in the rain
So I pointed to our inside table
And sent them to Bob – let me explain
He was having sorbet; I was done
My place at the table was free
He will love getting acquainted
And they will love his company!
This morning we cooled it in our room
Bob read and I enjoyed reading posts
The day started off rather quiet
More alone time than Swiss’s most
We went for a walk in Vissoie
And enjoyed every sight and each sound
We visited the local church and had
Time for prayer, finding God all around
“Daily Word” gave us the scripture
“Be glad in the Lord and rejoice”
Let nothing keep your joy from you-
Respond with a song; raise your voice!
Like a well that can never run dry
My joy is a wellspring from the Lord
I deal with whatever life brings me
With a smile – and I never am bored!
Keep your sense of humor alive
Find the joy in whatever you see
That poor bunny hit the door with a bang
Oh come on, have a good laugh with me!
The joy of being in Switzerland
Is part of the happiness of being alive
Well enough to travel and adapt
Thanking God each day we survive!
Thank you for traveling vicariously with us!
We love sharing with you. Take joy!
“Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.” Psalm 32:11
See ya tomorrow (God willing) –
