J O’D -‘Every day of your life there is joy waiting for you, hidden at the heart of the significant things that happen to you or secretly around the corner of quieter things. If your heart loves delight then you will always be able to discover the quiet joy that awaits to shine forth in many situations. Prayer should help us develop the habit of delight.’
