joyous

It is a quiet sort of day. I plan to curl up in the sun with my journal for a bit and then write, sew, bake, and clean some things. In lieu of me babbling on and on, I leave some lovely words by Dallas Willard. HT Tonia.

"Until our thoughts of God have found every visible thing and event glorious with his presence, the word of Jesus has not yet fully seized us...
We should, to begin with, think that God leads a very interesting life, and that he is full of joy. Undoubtedly he is the most joyous being in the universe. The abundance of his love and generosity is inseperable from his infinite joy. All of the good and beautiful things from which we occasionally drink tiny droplets of soul-exhilarating joy, God continuously experiences in all their breadth and depth and richness."
Abundant love. Infinite joy. And to think, we are "made in His image."
