The Door To Joy

Door with keys

 

The Door to Joy

The door to joy stands always open to usher through each weary soul

Whose feet have traversed the rocky path, sometimes stumbling

Wondering if they will ever arrive or be destined to travel endlessly

A beacon light catches the eye, reassuring that warmth and comfort

Nourishment for body, mind and spirit

Waits within.

Imagine a path that leads to such a portal. What is the journey that has brought you to stand at the address of your soul’s longing? Have you walked it alone, eschewing the comfort of companionship, believing that you needed to be solo? Have you desired someone to walk by you, only to find that scarce? Have their been fellow travelers who have step by step or skip by skip placed one foot after another, while holding your hand?

Once you arrive, dare you knock, fearing you will be turned away or do you easily and gracefully waltz right through, settle down into a comfy chair, prop your feet up in front of a roaring fireplace, surrounded by your favorite sensory delights?

It’s your birthright~
