More Joy in One Ordinary Day

April 18, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Eugene Peterson's The Message renders a portion of Psalm 4: "Why is everyone hungry for more? 'More, more,' they say. 'More, more.' I have God's more-than-enough, more joy in one ordinary day."

Judy and I have made a practice to name our blessings each night. Some nights, she does it for both of us when I am so weary, noticing what had brought joy to us during the day. Truly, I am...

Blessed.

Content.

Thankful.

Joy filled.

Healing.

Grateful.

Happy.

Loved.

The image below, that I have shared before, is from the old Chain of Rocks bridge (old route US 66) spanning the Mississippi River. I entitled it "Unexpected Joy." Do you see it? Do you have it?
