Ordinary Joys

Ordinary joy.
A sunbeam from God- at morning's first light,
A walk with my husband, in the amber moonlight,
A hug from my children and a sweet kiss goodnight.
A dear calm assurance, things will all work out right,
What more could I ask for, than ordinary joy?

Ordinary joy.
Breakfast cooking in a cast iron pan,
A bowl of tart apples and a recipe plan,
A mug full of coffee and a book in my hand,
A prayer for the journey, in this time weary land,
What more could I ask for, than ordinary joy?

Everyday joys,
Sometimes hidden from view,
You have to look closely, this you must do.
Realize they're beside you--they fade much too soon,
Reach out and savor the life given to you,
for what more could we desire than ordinary joy? 
----Jennifer Jones 2010
