Seeking JOY

Blue often seems to be the hardest color to find in flowers, at least in our neck of the woods.  Lots of red and yellow but blue is rare.

Jim found this blue butterfly on this almost blue flower.  It is really more purple.

Jim found this blue passion-flower blooming in the woods.  It looks too tropical to be in our dry Texas green belt!

Breath taking to say the least!

This past week it has been a struggle to look for Joy not frustration, hopelessness, despair!  To seek Joy takes effort, like searching for blue.  I find it when I sit and spend time with the Giver of Joy!  I find it to be readily available, if I look expecting to find!  I do look and I do find Joy in abundance, just like the blue flowers!  I number the Joy like Jim takes the photos!  I keep a record to remind myself,

“Greater is He who is in me, than he who is in the world!”

Enjoy the blue, and keep seeking JOY! It is closer than you think!  Just whisper His name.  Jesus is the Giver of JOY!
