Splash in a puddle! Today’s activity for “40 Days of Creation: Dwelling in the Word and World” invites us to express childlike joy! Where are those moments of tender joy meeting you today?
“Joy is a meeting place, of deep intentionality and of self forgetting, the bodily alchemy of what lies inside us in communion with what formerly seemed outside, but now is neither, but become a living frontier, a voice speaking between us and the world: dance, laughter, affection, skin touching skin, singing in the car, music in the kitchen, the quiet irreplaceable and companionable presence of a daughter: the sheer intoxicating beauty of the world inhabited as an edge between what we previously thought was us and what we thought was other than us.”– David Whyte, Consolations (2014)
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
