Enjoying Life

Ecclesiastes 8:15(NIV)

The running of the Bulls in Chicago went well. I did not run it, but I wanted to see how people travelled down to have an opportunity to run with the bulls.

The other event drew even more people.

Our life on earth is short, so if there is something that can be enjoyed, God is saying it is OK to enjoy life as long as you are not sinning against your body and against God. The next day, my family and I visited the Museum of Science and Industry. It was amazing to see the scientific and historical exhibits. The full-size Boeing 727 and the German U-Boat 505 was worthwhile to see. Don’t be stressed and enjoy something today even if you’re not on vacation. Find something that is enjoyable to do today.
