Finding Joy

Rest

is like unclenching a fist,

letting go of the need to do or to know,

in order that receiving

might take the place of grasping.

If we aren’t willing to rest,

God will arrange rests for us,

because He doesn’t want us to

rush through life but to enjoy it.

…   …   …   …   …

One interesting property of happiness

is that we

cannot be happy without knowing it

The awareness is a part of the happiness.

Rest is an opportunity

to become aware of the joy.

One thought on “Finding Joy”

  1. The quote of REST…. I breathe deep, wanting to drink it in, wanting it to be reality in my life…

    And can I even tell you how excited I was to come here and see several new posts from you?! VERY excited. :) xoxo
