Take Joy on a Journey

Take your joy on a journey
Around your neighborhood.

Spread it like a rash
That can’t be washed away
By circumstances
And the cares of the day.

Set it into motion,
Cause a commotion,
Give it a promotion.
However you do it,
Make it your devotion
To

Take your joy on a journey.

This sketch is suppose to be a racetrack, but it looks like a smile to me. I know a child who is passionate about drawing tracks. I plan to surprise him with this.

The poem came as I thought about how he practically glowed today when I showed him how to use his eraser to create art. He left with excited intention to try this. He smiled and giggled for the first time in my presence. His joy traveled home with me.

Isaiah 55:12-13 (ESV)
“For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace: the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for the Lord, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
