Joy. Every night at dinner. And I do mean every night, we pray a little prayer I made up to help our son recognize life’s target:

“We pray for Peace in our Soul, Joy in our Spirit and Love in our Heart. For all our family, all our friends and especially all those people less fortunate”.

Yesterday, I met Joy face to face. Seriously.

I desperately needed a haircut. My wife has cut my hair for 30 years. In the 70’s it was only once or twice a year. No big deal.

Now, it’s every 3-4 weeks, to stay professional for work.

There are few people on the planet who work as hard as my wife. If you think you work hard, I put her up against anyone, anywhere.

Anyway, to give her a break, I paid for a haircut and met Joy. Joy is a Christian, a singer, a Pastor’s wife, a mother of four (19-26), a stylist, and one of God’s little helpers.

She helped me feel good about loving Jesus. How? Because of the way she talked about Him, as if he lived at her home.

I want to talk about Jesus like that too. Thank you Joy.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.
