The Eight Pillars of Joy

This picture was taken at Lake Tahoe and my Senior student of two years ago is in the canoe. I think pictures of water give me joy so now to tell you about the Eight Pillars of Joy in The Book of Joy:

1. Perspective: There are many different angles.
2. Humility: I tried to look humble and modest
3. Humor: Laughter, Joking is much better
4. Acceptance: The only place where change can begin
5. Forgiveness: Freeing ourselves from the past
6. Gratitude: I am fortunate to be alive
7. Compassion: Something we want to become
8. Generosity: We are filled with joy

These are taken up one by one in the third section of the book and I have not reached it yet.
I am also busy preparing for the Feast of Pentecost which is May 31 this year and that happens also to be my 89th birthday so I need to pray much to the Holy Spirit to prepare me for a new year of life.
