I'm back!!  I really haven't been anywhere.  I have been without my computer and internet for three weeks.  My new computer arrived this morning.   
I did miss the computer, but I can't believe how full of joy these days have been.  Just sitting looking at the Lake is one of my favorite things, especially at twilight time.
 "Joy" was the title of my very first post in 2007.

Happiness Attacks

Saturday morning happiness attack.  As I started my morning walk, I turned and looked at the Lake and there was this graceful visitor with the morning sun on his neck. 
Reflecting on the Transfiguration of Jesus, Sr. Melannie Svoboda writes about "happiness attacks" that she has had throughout her life (Give Us This Day, August, pp.70-71)  "God's presence in our lives is often hidden.  But at particular moments, God's beauty or goodness or love breaks through our everyday."
