"There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes." ~C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle.

This has been a day of strange joys.

The thudding roar of intense rain, the flash and crack of yet another storm sweeping over the earth, overwhelming me with a strange combination of innocent wonder and chilling fear...

...driving through the deluge, surrounded by a waterfall of raindrops...lost in a whirlwind.

The sweetest surprise of being chosen among a crowd as one of six bloggers who won a beautiful giveaway hosted by the sweet and beautiful Anna Grace at Roman Holiday...

...such honor and joy that caused me to cast my twenty years of maturity to the side for just a moment and let out a squeal of unbridled excitement.

The unexpected blessing found in a sweet word of love from a friend close to my heart but far from my presence...

...realizing that someone is thinking of me and praying for me, even from so far away, is such a tender and comforting joy.

But then, even in all these earthly delights that have seemed to be the greatest of treasures...there was one moment of my day that far surpasses any other happiness that I have yet experienced.

I spent my morning, hands raised and eyes closed, simply lost in the glory and majesty of the King of the Universe...heard His voice whispering in my ear, and felt His tender love encompassing my heart.

There is no place on earth I would rather be than in His feeling more comforting and sublime than the one found when the realization of what my Lord out of His intense love for me.

He is my treasure... passion...

...and my utmost delight.

"God can't give us peace and happiness apart from Himself because there is no such thing." ~C.S. Lewis
