"I don't have to earn my life anymore. It was given to me to cherish as I would a precious gift from someone who loves me and whom I love."---Jim Curtan
This same Jim Curtan also, referring to what he realized at a retreat, said:
"God said my job was joy. But joy is not just about being happy. Joy is a rigorous spiritual practice of saying yes to life on life's terms."
Drop dead profound.
And in the spirit of joy, and to counterbalance the lately more sad posts at the happyluau, here are some joy-filled pictures I've been saving to share with you. They didn't seem to go with any of my previous posts this week, but they will fit with this one!
~The two photos above are from Cute Overload, the happy hamster and the happy dog.
~This photo of the happy nuns is from this blog.
