Unflinching Joy

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Joy is both a
gift and a practice,
but it isn’t primarily a
feeling any more than
self-control or faithfulness
are feelings. It is
a muscle we can
strengthen with exercise.
Tish Harrison Warren

Beauty lies where
pain has left its print
a symbol of the
struggle to liberate
Magic Eye

Injustice is real common
but it is not the
end of the story.
Heartbreak is real but
 it gives way to redemption
suffering is real but
it cannot erase beauty.
Tish Harrison Warren

If you fly high enough
you can see the 
curvature of the Earth.

If you live long enough
you can see the
curvature of history.

Joy is not "toxic positivity"
It does not insist that
we pretend things are
better than they are.
It does not refuse to
face grief or sorrow.
But it does say that
they're not all there is
and that they are not all
that needs to be faced.
Tish Harrison Warren
