Joy is our natural state. If you don’t believe that, or it feels untrue, consider a toddler. When they are sad they are really sad. When they are angry, they are really angry. But the very next moment, often with no perceivable impetus, they are abounding in JOY. Often with the remnants of the sorrow or anger still there.
We need to REMEMBER to CHOOSE to EMBRACE and ABIDE in JOY.
For a little while on Saturday and Sunday night, I and some friends enJOYed watching the moon rise. Often it is the little pleasures which bring forth JOY.
