these have made me joy-jump
(and....that would be imaginary joy-jumps
because i rarely actual-jump)
a son's home run
food lion brand nutella
fresh sweet basil's aroma
turning soil with husband and son
playing play dough with nieces and nephew
i'm watching the news even as i write
this world is
scary-sad and sorrowful
guilt is snuggling in
beside me on the couch
reminding me that joy should not accompany sorrow
shouldn't it, though?
jesus tells his disciples to take heart
for he has overcome the world
i will not allow scary-sad sorrow
to glue me to the screen
yes, i will pray
i'm going out to plant my basil....
how do you respond to the scary-sad sorrow of this world?
