this is the title of the book that i am reading right now.
it goes really good with a cup of coffee [or tea].
been praying for God to teach me joy that is not fleeting.
i want my children to know joy.
joy that does not fade with the ebb and flow of life.
a poem in chapter four made jeff and i pause. and even read it again.
I was regretting the past
And fearing the future.....
Suddenly, my Lord was speaking:
"My name is 'I am.'" He paused.
I waited. He continued.
When you live in the past, with its mistakes
and regrets, it is hard. I am not there.
My name is not 'I was.'
When you live in the future, with fears, it is hard,
I am not there.
My name is not 'I will be.'
When you live in this moment, it is not hard.
I am here.
My name is 'I AM.'"

joy is found in the moments where He is.
i pray for you to have a wonderful weekend
being in the moment
