Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope! Romans 15:13 MSG
Joy is a red balloon floating into a deep blue sky…far above the noise and clutter and confusion of earth.
It’s free and I wonder sometimes where the helium of joy can be found in this earth-bound life.
But then I breathe . . . and the very breath of life is inhaled deep into my being from the source of life.
Joy takes flight again.
I float above life. I touch the sky and laugh ’till it hurts, tickled by the freedom of the reality of it.
Joy floats, and I soar with it and upon the breath of it.
And live beyond myself . . . again.
