An old family friend of ours sends out beautiful, hand illustrated Christmas cards every year. And one year, the card featured this stunning quote from the Old Testament:
“The stars shine joyfully at their posts…they shine to delight their Creator.” (Baruch 3:34-35)
To shine joyfully at my post. This has become my life’s goal. This passage sums up, in my mind, the key to happiness:
Live in the will of the Lord, and live delightfully for Him.
A few years later, I realized this passage was part of the readings from the Easter Vigil Mass. Hearing it this Easter, I knew I had to share it with you all.
