God's Joy and Delight

From Reflections For Ragamuffins July 23 His Joy In Me By Brennan Manning

(Read the words for you, YOU are His JOY!

It is important to recapture the element of delight in creation. Imagine the ecstacy, the veritable orgy of joy, wonder, and delight when God makes a person in his own image! When God made you! The Father gave you as a gift to himself. You are a response to the vast delight of God. Out of an infinite number of possibilities, God invested you with existence. Regardless of the mess you have mad out of the original clay, wouldn't you agree with Aquinas that "it is better to be than not to be"?

Have I really appreciated the wonderful gift that I am?
Could the Father's gift to himself be anything but beautiful?
