... take joy ...







The gloom of the world
Is but a shadow;
Behind it,
Yet within reach,
Is joy.
Take joy.

~ Fra Giovanni

  1. "The gloom of the world is but a shadow." I think I will paint that above every portal in my house, for I need that wise reminder throughout every day. Thanks for the joy of this little jewel.

  9. It's so easy when walking in the shadows to forget that shadows imply light, pure light.

    By cultivating joy we can not only enjoy life more— but also discover what lurks in the shadows that might benefit from being brought into the light.
