Gratitude Sunday

I’m in awe of the ease that 2017 has started with.  I know we are only starting the year, but I am aware of a positivity every where I go.

I don’t mean to imply that all things are without issue, but the issues are more manageable, and the outcomes more pleasing.  

I’ve reestablished a kernel of Joy, deep in my being.  The joy has been growing, and has been one of the missing factors of my gratitude journey.  

Rediscovering joy, has brought a bit more balance, and fun to my life.  It has helped me be more me.

Today, I am grateful for the joy that is growing in me daily.

What are you grateful for today?

  1. Joy for sure is a great thing to be grateful for. I’m a little lost in these few weekds of the year, I don’t know what I really want or wish for. But I’m paying attention for the little things on my way, and trying to be grateful for them.

  2. I have been working on joy the last few months; perhaps I need to focus just as much on gratitude. I do think they are tied together: joy does spring from gratitude, and the more joyous you are, the more grateful you are. A positive cycle, for sure. Happiness is nice, but so dependent on circumstances. Joy is deeper and dependent on your connection to God. I have been revisiting old childhood songs about joy, and have been mulling over a verse that was on the Internet that I don’t remember as I did the other verses: “If you want joy, you must ask for it.” A simple concept involving a lot of trust.

    • True. Joy is a little deposit in our spirits from God, a little seed. The more care we take of it, the more it grows, and gives back to us. It is comfort, and peace wrapped in contentment. The secret smile that only we understand because it is our intimate connection with the One who created the universe, and loves us beyond measure.
