These little fellows recognize joy; at least three of them are expressing it. I hope that hovering bird is the Holy Spirit who is watching over them. They do not seem to be at all concerned but are just enjoying themselves. They show us how we should be able to recognize joy in our lives and just enjoy it. God wants us to be joyful. Joy is freeing; we let go of worries and let God take care of us. Think of the last time you just recognized joy in your life and felt as carefree and happy as these children riding the waves.
Psalm 118:24 - "This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." (NIV)
Mother Stuart: " To be a joy-bearer and a joy-giver says everything; it means that one is faithfully living for God and that nothing else counts, and if one gives joy to others we are doing God's work. With joy without and within, all is well."
