artful joy

-At Fred's art show last night, he spoke of joy: the joy of Mary anointing Jesus with her bottled-up joy, the joy of faith and the joy of paint on canvas. Through his words and beautiful paintings, Fred imparted some of his joy to me.

-A woman in church today, having read my blog, asked why I had a "difficult week." It was so nice of her to notice and ask, and then share with me very encouraging words and some of her own story.

-The luxury of relaxing with a Coke and reading a magazine after washing dishes, potting plants and cleaning up.
