‘Our Joy and Peace’ can many times depend upon how we start our day! From the time that our feet hit the floor in the morning, what are we claiming? Our day actually starts as soon as we open our eyes, let’s start at that point giving God thanks for getting us through the night and setting a new day before us.
My mother used to say ‘that no matter how bad things seem to be, there is someone facing something even harsher’ and that is so true. All we have to do is to take our eyes off ourselves then take a real interest in those around us. There may be a reason for the frown on their faces, or they may be avoiding eye contact with us because of their feeling of unworthiness.
