A day-by-day journey which leads . . . Home

“Behind you is the confusion of disappointments, in front of you is the confusion of anticipating things that have not yet arrived in their proper time. Only in here and now is there clarity. Enjoy the moment with clear awareness and knowledge that God is in you, and everything around you.” ~ my beloved uncle

During one of the most difficult times of my life my uncle lovingly wrote these words to me, not knowing I would cherish them for the rest of my life. God is in us and in everything around us; wherever we go He will be right there with us. He is our Comforter and our Teacher through every experience we go through on this earth. Even the deepest pain or pleasure is in essence the same, an experience of life, in which we become stronger and closer to our Father. Let us live every day to the fullest, finding joy in “the little things” as well as in suffering.

Joy is not a destination, but a day-by-day journey in which God unfolds through the treacherous roads which we must take in order to reach Home. “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:43
