Pure joy is often purely simple. Take for instance the vibrant pink petunia I stumbled upon in recent days. We had not planted petunias for many years. (Yes, us dogs are very aware of our surroundings!) Not only was the petunia growing under our deck, it was in the midst of rocky soil,
There I was playing fetch from the front and back yards, when I noticed the bright pink petunia. There was a petunia NOT looking lonely by itself; but rather, it seemed to shout “Be the one that stands out for PURE JOY!!!” So there it was, day 4 of Pure Joy.
This caused me to reminisce about other encounters that seemed out of place. Like how about the time, a dead fish appeared in our backyard out of no where? We all figured another bird snatched it out of the nearby lake and plopped it in our yard nearby. Of course, I just look for orange balls to appear everywhere! HA! They have not dropped from the sky yet.
So today, look for Pure Joy in unexpected places!
