Monday Sparks

Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:
Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

Here is our Sparks for today

Mom is reading a book by Henri Nouwen right now.  Sometimes its really hard to choose joy but she knows you have to keep trying.

I like this Spark....life is full of choices and some are more "weighty" than others. Choosing joy is not always easy.

Love, Pam

Thank you for the wonderful share. We love having positive vibes all the time around us and hope we can spread them out to everyone around us. We love the quote from Henri Nouwen that you shared. Hits it right on the mark. Hope you have a wonderful week.

That's a good one. Some days it is harder to do than others. We know Mom Sharon knows that. But every day is better with joy and laughter.
