I love to see you smile and I enjoy hearing you laugh, but I want that to stem from something more than a new toy truck, ice-cream from McDonald's, or a visit to the playground.
I want you to discover happiness because you know Jesus loves you. Because you have a joy way, deep down inside that is so much bigger and better than a lollipop or stickers or cartoons.
But mostly I want you to grasp that regardless of any of this, you can still be content and you can choose to be happy.
You can choose to be happy. You can choose to be happy. Yes, I'm repeating myself, but I've gotten pretty good at that since you're often too busy playing to hear me the first time.
Life won't be fair. Your toys won't be the newest. Your house won't be the biggest. You won't run the fastest. There will always be someone that has something or can do something better than you.
But that's okay because you can still be happy. You can still choose to find contentment and confidence in who Jesus made you to be and in what he blessed you to have.
