Daffodils delight in Dublin Castle

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12:25-26

I like that I can walk, cycle or take the Luas into Dublin city center from my neighborhood. I like having LOTS of choices. It’s a product of growing up in a socially deprived area where there was hardly any resources for young people. We’re still under a 5K Lockdown in Ireland. It’s been chilly and overcast this week. It would be easy to worry, complain or loose my joy. I refuse to do any of those three things. When I set my mind to pressing into joy, finding fun in small things and seeing the beauty in my day, I overcome. Things are not as they should be yet so the temptation to be anxious is constantly with us. My best defense is seeking God and staying in constant communication with him. And giving thanks for fresh daffodils at Dublin Castle or the courage of former Irish journalist Veronica Guerin (sculpture below). There’s always something to worry about. It’s the nature of the broken creation we live in. Please enjoy these pictures from inside the walls of Dublin Castle and thank you for reading and contributing to my blog. I appreciate your readership, your comments, encouragement and your time.

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
