Hold Fast to Joy

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”― Mark Buchanan, The Holy Wild: Trusting in the Character of God

“So let the world go, but hold fast to joy.”― May Sarton, Selected Poems

Not done.
Never really done.
The work of becoming.
Fresh starts.
Long middles.
Sudden ends.
Making space for new beginnings.
Some chosen.
Most not.
Seed to bloom.
Dirt to color.
Growing slowing.
Pieces of a puzzle coming together.
Often without the box to see what the picture will be.
A step at a time.
Joy on the journey.
Hold fast.

“Prayer is not asking for what you think you want, but asking to be changed in ways you can’t imagine.”― Kathleen Norris
