I love this photo. Flowers with sun dappled across their petals brings me soul-stirring Joy. Joy that brings me back to life and transforms me. When I close my eyes and exhale, letting the sun drench my upturned face, I imagine myself being transformed and warmed by God’s love. As I exhale, I let go of my problems, my worries, my timelines. I inhale peace that lasts forever. For the rest of the day I can smile, a delicious, secret smile just behind my real smile – remembering I’ve been touched by the Light of the World.
Beauty with silence becomes understanding, and one with understanding blossoms. But beauty and understanding with radience becomes Joy.
