Finding Joy

Today I woke up with a mission – I must meditate!  I can’t even remember the last time I did.

This meditation practice had a theme.  I focused on the phrase, “Find the joy in living”. When I’m out of meditation practice it is hard to stay focused on one subject for any great length of time.  I don’t think I’m the only one with this challenge.  Once aware of each mind-wander, I went back to, “Find the joy in living.”  I lasted about 18-minutes before my legs got too stiff sitting cross-legged.

Cheese - yum!So far, I’ve only made one drastic change in the name of my new theme, “Find the joy in living.”  This afternoon, I purchased a small wedge of delightful buttery soft french cheese and crusty baguette at the market.  After unloading the groceries I indulged in 3 slices of baguette lathered with cheese.  I have found the joy in living today!

    “The joy of the Lord is my strength.” True joy comes in knowing and trusting God. I pray that you will seek Him.

    There is a lot of joy in soft cheese but I find even more joy when I wash it down with a cold glass of white wine!
