It is my prayer that you will find Joy in this Morning. Just a few moments ago I was reading over one of my journals, and I came to a page with this resolution written at the top: “Today, instead of a to-do list, I am going to make a to-experience list.” My notes don’t suggest how that resolve turned out, but beside me on the arm of my chair looms a notebook containing my daily and weekly lists of tasks. Perhaps I didn’t learn. Or pay attention to my own declaration. But it is never too late! God gave you and me this day to notice—and perhaps even be dazzled—by the wonder all around us just waiting to be discovered and experienced.
So what do I want to experience? Top of my list is love. I want to look deep into someone’s eyes and see love mirrored back to me. Not gushy romantic love necessarily. I want to really see each person I meet today. And to really love them with the love of Christ. To take the time to notice and experience each person I encounter. What would be at the top of your to-experience list? What would make your heart glad today? I wish you love,
