January 22 . . . A “Crown of Rejoicing”
For what [is] our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? [Are] not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? 1Thessalonians 2:19
The Abbess hopes that there is someone in your life to whom you are a “crown of rejoicing,” someone who can look at your life and say . . . “This one is doing well, and it fills my heart with joy.
Let us “do well” today, my beloved Sisters and Brothers! Let us “do well” in the unseen things, which is the heart of monasticism, and let us do things that might be seen with more joy than meets the eye, because we bring our joy before our God, continually.
His joy is our strength; our joy is His delight. Let us “do well” today, because we may, and because all our fullness is in Him.
