Today’s readings make me think of happiness, and joy, and
I was thinking about these kinds of days when I read the readings for today. They are about radiance, joy, and thanks. Now, to be honest, life in the 21st century doesn’t often seem to give us abundant opportunities for joy. Sometimes we have to look for joy, and sometimes we have to look hard for it.
When we find this joy, we often seem “radiant” to others.
When we are like this, as are like the people we see all the time
who are often relentlessly happy, full of enjoyment of their lives
and their conditions. You know the people I mean—sometimes
their constant happiness is kind of irritating, especially if we
encounter them on the days in which we haven’t found much
Look for the joy left for us in every day. Seek it out. Leave yourself open to it. We’re intended to have it; it’s there for is. There’s no reason we can’t be as radiant, inside and out, as Moses was. The joy left for us and which can inhabit us is reflective of the pearl of great price that, when found, fills our life with happiness and love.
