JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 326 :: joy is a rest

25 Nov

{sunday, sunday} 

Sundays are for rest, rejuvenation, and around here, football. Today, it was a special day reserved for a little shopping and tree decorating and some Patriots. All very Christmas-y things for me.

But, last night I broke an ornament. So, today I bought a new one. It isn’t a replacement, really, it’s a substitution. It’s new. It’s shiny. I love it. Just like the old one.

The new ornament is a heart with angel wings in gold. It reminds me to focus on the joy of what we have, what we have lost and all the things that we have yet to know that we cannot possibly guess right now. 

And that is a lesson in joy. Sometimes, joy is just being with the now, right now. 

Today was a Sunday, which in so many ways is the place between the old and the new. 
And, right now, I’m trying to hold onto the joy of the weekend now before it too slips away into the new now.

Joy is a moment in time.

More tomorrow…
