"Shut your mouth, open your eyes and ears; take in what is there..." wrote C. S. Lewis in his classic work Surprised By Joy. That's good advice in our pursuit of joy. What do you see and hear in the world around you that sparks wonder or delight? It could be one of a thousand things--a hot cup of coffee, the laughter of friends, a book filled with inspirational wisdom, a well-written song, a cozy sweater, a delicious meal, a tree dusted with snow, a street lamp on a misty night (I like street lamps for some reason). "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it" (Ps. 24:1).
