It's that time of year again when the sun goes down you will get the thrill of watching little glowing lights appear up from the grass.
( I hear firefly's aren't in every part of the country. .that would make me sad not live where these little guys are!)
Firefly's, little bugs with light up hinney's. . .just because.  Really as far as I can tell, they're just here for our enjoyment.

And if you wonder how a little bug can make you smile, just turn a few kids loose in the grass with them on a summer's night. Oh the squeals of delight as they chase the little guys around.
Even the Princess, who DOES NOT LIKE BUGS AT ALL, loves to chase firefly's!

I was thinking about how God loves us so much, while watching my kids chase firefly's this week.
He has given us so many tangible gifts, so many meaningful, life essential things, but firefly's- well they are there just to make us smile.

He created something with the idea of just making us giggle.

How amazing is that?

Can you think of anything that God has gifted us with just to make us smile?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
