The theme of this week's Joy Diet was Play. As usual, it wasn't what I thought it would be, but it was the first time throughout my journey in this book that I actually underlined something. For me that is unusual- if I love something or it hits me I underline. That's for another post.
Let's get out of the way what I didn't like. I couldn't get into her constant referral to our life stuff as a game. That said...
I liked the idea of our focus coming from two points of view, seeing the big picture and then our small steps and really thinking about the steps we are taking- are they leading us into our big picture? I've been paying more attention to my thoughts lately and this worked into that somehow.
Watching every little step I take could get rigid and constricting, if she hadn't taken us from there into flow. My favorite statements were in this section and they reminded me of a treasured scripture taken from Matthew in the Message paraphrase.
"Learn the unforced rhythms of grace."
So when I did my vision card this week, I let it flow.
