Throwback Thursday… sometimes I focus on a thought for a short time and then I move on. I am realizing how often I need to come back to them and give them more attention. As I am usually late to the party, I am jumping on the old idea of throwback Thursday to revisit some of those ideas.
“Ignoring reality does not breed joy. Pretending that what is true does not exist is not holy defiance. The seeds of joy can only be firmly planted in the pungent soil of the here and now while at the same time being tethered to eternity. Joy is fully rooted in the truth. Joy embraces all the senses and is fully awake to the laughter, the wonder, and the beauty present in the moment as well as the sorrow, the angst, and the fear. Joy says, ‘Even so, I have a reason to celebrate.” -Stasi Elderidge
I set my mind and heart above and choose joy!
