Rog writes a blog called “Experiments with Joy.” I particularly resonated with today’s entry and thought I’d share it…
Your home is nine days away from foreclosure sale and you don’t have a place to move to. Your bankruptcy lawyer is poised to rescue your home from the sale – at least for a little while – with moments to spare before the train runs you over.
You’re living in a half-packed state as you launch your new business ideas. Friends and family are pulling up stakes and moving away ahead of you. It seems like a lot of good-byes.
Where’s the joy in that?
There’s joy in realizing your peace is growing unshakable.
There’s joy in placing your future in the hands of God.
There’s joy as old friendships renew and new ones form, as people come together to help each other.
There’s joy in understanding that healing power is strengthening.
There’s joy in the deepening partnership of a loving relationship.
There’s joy in demonstrating how our peace and joy are so independent of this world of drama.
