finding joy in the journey

its been well over a week since i posted. how disappointing ... so sorry i sincerely apologize. my thoughts keep turning to this conference talk "finding joy in the journey" i could worry about how to write this eloquently but im not going to ... im just going to write. i was thinking about nie nie this morning. i was thinking about how the best example of finding joy in the journey is someone who finds it in a life that is not floating about in a pretty and easy way. but an ugly and difficult way turned beautiful by the soul. nie nie is just that in so many ways. i doubt she will ever even begin to understand her far spread effect. sometimes we go about life thinking its so difficult (and to some degree it is) until something tragic happens to redirect our entire way of life. and soon we seek a new balance. i dont know why this is so heavy on mind this morning, i must need to find more joy in this journey i am on, this beautiful journey.

Agreed! I too must learn from the examples placed before me. There are so many things to be greatful for. Satan is so powerful and cunning. He tempts us to focus on what we dont have, what others have and how "unfair" things seem.

Why do I find myself looking at the negative things instead of the positvie things?

Love you

We really do need to talk. Its so wild to read your posts because our hearts seem to be in the same place at the same time...
