CS Lewis wrote a lot about Joy. I can’t find the exact quote – but in my paraphrase the glimpses of Joy we experience in this world are but pale reflections of the Joy that awaits us in the world to come.
If we try to grasp and hold onto or seek after Joy for its own sake, we miss the point, and the very experience of Joy slips through our fingers.
Here are some glimpses of Joy that have kept me going this last week:
- My children playing with their imaginations and nature.
…and goldfish in a garden
- Hearing with your soul the music of creation
Glimpses of Joy are gifts of Grace. I will accept and appreciate the moment, and drink of the refreshment offered.
