During this Easter season, even with so much trouble going on in our country and the world. I can’t help but feel a sense of joy. Joy is not something we can go out and buy or something that can be given to us by another. Joy is found in our hearts. Each of us finds joy in different ways, but it is there for all of us.
Joy can be found in watching a baby sleep, or in my case watching a cat sleep, especially when he is on my lap.. I know the mischief he can cause when awake, but when asleep he is so calm and peaceful. I can’t help but smile.
Joy can be found having dinner out with Kathy to celebrate a special occasion, in this case an anniversary or eating in the car after going through Burger King’s drive through. Even sharing a simple meal at home brings me joy.
What else makes me happy? A bright sunny day. Blue skies dotted with puffy white clouds banish thoughts of gloom.
There are so many other things that bring me joy, some big and some little. All I know is that when I need it most joy will be there for me.
Joy Joy is not limited or confined to a specific size or shape. Joy reaches out in all directions touching more than just one person at a time. Joy is found in our hearts not dependent on anyone else. Joy - may it find us when we need it most.
What brings you joy?
