...on JOY

The priest wondered aloud if many people of faith could define Christian joy. That got me to thinking…and praying:

I sense the beneficent presence of the Creator of the Universe (in my sometimes small, less than benevolent life.)

I flirt with contentment and hope - that my needs will be met, that the glass is half-full, that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

I have an ethereal assurance - of life after death, of a restored planet, of God’s company.

I have joy! Amen.
