2015.04.07: joy of the Lord

You will show me the path to life,
abounding joy in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever. – Ps 16:11

You opened my eyes
to the beaming joy of mother church
when her lost children visit
even if only twice a year

You opened my ears
to the resounding joy
when gloria and alleluias are sung
after the season of fasting

You opened my heart
to all those who are yet trapped
in the busyness of this world
instead of the joy of your presence

You gave me the grace
to be aware and grateful
for finding the joy of the Lord
in all the things ordinary
