Tiny Joys

Forgiveness following a fight,

Protein disguised as pasta,

A huge yellow butterfly making peace outside the kitchen window,


Small thoughts of contentment followed by abundant blessings,

Five-minute walks that made me giddy simply because of the person I was walking with,

An English teacher that makes me laugh uncontrollably,

Hearing my parents praying out loud outside the office door,

Getting more and more okay with being alone with God,

Thoughts of the far-off future, the less far future, and the tomorrow future,

All of those looking really splendid,

Fruit (of the Spirit) growing.

There is infinite room for the Holy Spirit and absolutely no room for fear.

What joy is this, that’s found by starting the day in total surrender to God?

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here.
