Five Minute Friday: Joy
Friday, December 09, 2016
As I sit here this morning pondering the word joy,
outside my window (past the cat sitting in my way) I see snow.
I wish you could have seen him yesterday when the snow starting falling.
Sitting on his sofa watching the snow come down. Doing his strange meowing that he does when something excites or interests him.
Then Hubby left to go do some work at the church.
The meowing changed.
He was distraught.
He paced and walked the house. Checking every room.
Then hubby came back.
A quick jump up, a soft petting, and gentle purr.
Then back to sitting in his spot, watching the snow, with his excited "meows".
Isn't that how joy is fully expressed?
Joy is more than happiness. Joy is happiness contained within something.
For this cat, for this Chase...joy is my hubby and snow falling.
What is your joy?

The rules are simple Free write on word prompt for five minutes (more or less). Link up. Then go and encourage those who have gone on before. Simple enough eh? :) Join us won't you?
