In Which I Look For Mid-Week Joy

Some days I catch myself. I stop, take breathes and say, you have become very serious. I give myself permission to laugh, to lighten up, to go looking for the joy that I know already exists. I become a little more intentional about letting go, letting laughter ooze into my pores, relaxing into a belly laugh, deep crows-feet laden smiles, and breathe in pure joy.

Today is Day 9.

I love the visual imagery these  quotes from Ann Lamott bring to my soul-weary self. It gives me permission to loosen up and to rejoice with Creator God. Celebrate that He designed laughter. Acknowledge that joy is deeply healing and necessary. I am going looking in an intentional way for more joy, more humor, more silliness.

Shall we be silly together.

Ready, Set, Go Notice.

Joy is the best make-up.–Ann Lamott

Laughter is carbonated holiness — Ann Lamott

I hope you hear the invitation to follow along via a subscription either in your reader or delivered when I post to your inbox. You may come and go whenever you like, if you choose not to subscribe. There are no rules. Just a warm welcome.

I am also on twitter, facebook and on instagram. Today I shall look for joy and post what I find on my instagram feed. Off to lighten up, to let the tears of laughter roll.

As always, thank you for being here.

Dancing With Delight

God doesn’t come and go. God lasts.
He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine
he doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
(Isaiah 40:27-31)

Resting today knowing that He gives strength.

He builds our Hope.

While doubt fades to the dim and barely visible places.

And all God’s people shout the loud Amen and Amen again,

At the hope in all that is to come, on that mercy-new morning.

Dancing with delight under a azure blue canvas, warm soul comforter,

Step by gentle step, with all of Creation

That knows and loves Him,

To the deepest widest mystery place that was created by the Maker Of It All.
