Joy

The preacher spoke of inner joy,
how to find that in small things.

I looked up and saw my friend
coming in through the door.

  1. :) Inner joy can be at times difficult to acknowledge, especially when we are in the midst of hard times like now.

    Thanks for this reminder, Rosemary. :)

  3. Thank you both. In fact, Ambiguitylotus, the preacher was speaking on exactly that: finding joy even in hard times such as these.

  4. Rosemary, this is beautiful. I love, "I looked up and saw my friend coming in through the door." I pictured my own dear friend...simply beautiful!
