Coffee for Your Heart- What brings you Joy?
It started with
Cocoa and marshmallows frothy
on a frosty winter afternoon,
Snow swirling and landing soft,
hushing the world
and making things clean once more.
Mittens and hats and
the slick , slick of snow pants sliding together and
the clunk ,clunk of snow boots tramping across the floor-
Laughter and shouts,
sleds and children gliding down an icy hill,
Make me see
Make me think;
Pure joy – joy real,
No thinking, or trying;
It just comes out,
from a deep, inside the belly kind of place,
a feeling that everything is all right-
that no longer must I worry or strive,
or take care of things, because
I am taken care of.
My needs are met.
I am loved and held and have great worth,
because You are here- and You tell me so-
over and over again.
You, Jesus, are here to stay
with me every moment on-
I have You
and now I am free-
free to just purely ,BE-
to let what is inside out
to enjoy blessings all around
to smell and see,
to taste and hear
to feel, deep to the core,
all the goodness you have for me-
spilling out all over.
Your presence the best part.
Pure joy-Joy real
with marshmallows on top-
“Surely You have granted her unending blessings and made her glad with the joy of Your presence.”
