What's your definition of joy? Would you like more of it in your life?
I'm sure I've mentioned before the description of joy someone wrote in a card they sent decades ago when my former husband faced cancer. This is what it says about joy: "In times of sorrow, JOY is a seed of hope. In times of loneliness, JOY is a single ray of light. In times of success, JOY is an avalance of flowers, giggles, songs and hugs.... Its value is the same on the mountaintop or at the depth of the canyon."
Joy. It means different things to different people. It means something different to you and me at different stages of our lives. It means something different to us depending on what's happening in and around us.
That last sentence says it all, however: "Its value is the same on the mountaintop or at the depth of the canyon." So whatever joy looks like for you today, is there some way you can create more in your life right now? What would it take? For, as we know, we have limited control over the circumstances of our lives. But we do have choice about how we respond. Will you choose hope today? Will you choose light? Joy? Peace? Serenity? Hugs and giggles?
