This photo was taken one week ago as I visited my daughter in Maryland. We visited the battlefield of Manassas on a clear, bright day. This tree was alone, tall, and strong against the brilliant blue sky. It struck me with awe and I stood for a long time taking it in. Scenes like this never cease to amaze me. And they fill me with such joy and thankfulness.
May your Sunday be filled with joy and a remembrance of Christ’s love for you. And His glorious resurrection!
As we begin Great Lent, and today being Forgiveness Sunday, I ask your forgiveness friends. Whether in word or deed, in knowledge or in ignorance; if I have offended you, please forgive me.
I am an Orthodox Christian, a deacon’s wife, a mother, and an aspiring Kindler of Joy.
I believe I’ve begun to understand (finally), by the grace of God, where we can begin to find happiness. True happiness. My heart longs for a deeper connection to those around me and to creation. I want to feel joy not only in myself but to see it on the face of people I love and those that God brings my way.
Thus, begins my journey to become a Kindler of Joy. It is a journey, a path of learning and growing. So I’ve created my blog as a reminder to myself, daily, to open my eyes and find the beauty and joy around me. I long to share this joy, to spread this joy and to inspire others to become Kindlers of Joy. When we kindle joy in others we spread a light throughout this dark world. A light that is desperately needed.
Won't you join me in spreading this light, this joy?
