“Joy in the Morning”

Some things are worth repeating…
Swing open your heart to JOY in this day
It really changes the view!!
Doors are made
For hanging wide
to allow the WONDER to enter in 🙂
Look in all the places
that your childish heart takes DELIGHT in!
Breathe in LOVE
Let all else
Drift away 😉
Your life is something opaque, not transparent, as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way.
But if you hold it up against the light of God’s goodness, it shines and turns transparent, radiant and bright.
And then you ask yourself in amazement:
Is this really my own life I see before me?
Thank you for the light you shine into my life and those around you.
An extraordinary gift.
P.S. The photos above came from the yard of the place where I stayed while teaching workshops in Westford, MA—just outside of Boston—a few years ago.
….I have been swinging on the swing and can’t wipe the grin off my face. It’s good to feel like a kid inside:)
Today might be a good day for you to do something childish.
Drink hot chocolate from a very tiny teacup, color in a coloring book with new crayons….or go find a swing!! If you do—share it —I’d love to know!
If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.

The BIG project immersion continues, so I thought it was a good time to rerun some of the most read posts on this blog.
Keep sending those good thoughts and love my way—they are helping me so much to infuse my best on what I am working on!!!
