"A joy not shared is incomplete."
This made me reflect on how seldom I really am able or even try to write of my life in God. He suggests that we write someone "of the joy of life with God." I think I have tried sometimes to write of the joy of life with God. I know that God loves me and that is the source of my joy. He knows me and He loves me. I cannot deserve or earn love; it is a gift and God has given me this gift of his eternal, unconditional love and having that conviction no matter what is a deep joy for me. I think prayer is a joy for me as I go to be loved by God. When I feel myself in the Heart of Jesus surrounded by love, I feel deep peace and joy. It is also a joy to know that God is always present to me. It is a mystery but I know that I am in God and God is in me - I guess I should be overflowing with joy all the time. It helps to keep things in perspective as I am prone to let little things upset me. Well, I do want to try to write a few notes today and maybe try to write of the joy of life with God. Looking for daily joys is a good practice for the month of May and one that I think will please both Jesus and Mary.
