Joyful Journey 28 January 2019

What do you see when you take a walk through your life? We all have those moments we’d love to be able to hit erase or backspace so we could get a do-over. Because we all have those dark sides, hopefully it makes us more accepting and forgiving of them in others. Making amends isn’t easy, but when I think about the wrongs I’ve done to others, I really want to find the courage to admit it, ask for pardon, and be able to move on in relationship.

I also see those bright moments, and many more of those than the ones I’d take back if I could. Bright moments like Bullet’s ears perked up as we ride out to bring the heifers in. The way the rose-colored light spreads across the tree rows as the sun sets. The blue Christmas lights outside the bedroom window in the dark of night, swaying in the breeze. Joy when I hear my son’s voice on the other end of the phone. Sharing stories with my daughter as she journeys to a whole new place in her life.

We were not made to dwell in darkness, but in light and blessing. Make amends and find delight in your journey.
