Joy is the topic of many bible studies, meditative endeavors, yoga sessions, and personal conversations. I have often wondered what joy looks like; have you? I sometimes think that joy is an elusive state in our fast-paced ever-changing world. There are times when I get exasperated at trying to create happiness, joy, or pleasant feelings. It is just impossible…..or is it?
This is an unedited picture of my grandson at his uncle Eric’s wedding. I have looked at this picture many times over the past few years and every time I realize how genuine and heartfelt this dance was! To me this picture elicits genuine joy! Two children enjoying the moment with not a care in the world! Maybe that is why Luke 18:17 ESV says, “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Be where your feet are! Enjoy each moment as it unfolds!
As the Garth Brooks song states, “don’t miss the dance”!
