You do not have to struggle and work to find spontaneous Joy…. it can come like an unexpected shower of Hope after a period of drought. You can leap for the sheer joy of being alive BUT ponder this thought……
A line of four women waiting to have major breast surgery in beds outside the Hospital Theatre. One of them gently commented …’we must make sure to remind them the op is not on our heads’
Not particularly funny but something unexpected almost holy swept the room. One by one they began to laugh. As each bed was wheeled away the nursing staff – the theatre doctors all felt the beds vibration and everyone was relaxed and surrendered to the day’s circumstances.
Even hours later the unusual joy in that usually stressful environment was spoken about. Only God!
It was a God Gift of Joy . EVERYONE benefited.
Think on this.
Open your heart to JOY. You will find it in the least likely places! Maybe a flower or a smile (or that mess all over the floor….you can’t plan it) Just open your heart to receive it.
Joyfully journey onward!
