Make Space for Joy

“Having more joy does not necessarily require a life overhaul – you may just need to create more space in your life for moments of joy.”    ~Debrena Jackson Gandy


the dream I had

the night before

reminded me

of what I’m doing here

“I don’t have a choice,” I said,

to the unruly group

I had been left to deal with.

“I’m forced into this; you’ll know what I mean one day,”

I said

feeling it truly


But then an older man

came right up

into my space

wagged his finger

in front of my face

“You say you don’t have a choice?

You DO have a choice!”

he said.

I love being in touch with God so clearly

that sometime in my day

the dream comes back to play


to play back and tell me

the answer.

  1. Wonderful! I love how you can take something as profound as that dream was to you and put it into words in such a way that we can feel it too.
