What brings you JOY????
Spend more time with that
So, what brings YOU real Joy?
I gain JOY through
seeing my children happy,
when the underdog wins,
when a prayer is answered,
when I know I've made a positive difference,
a handwritten card/note w/heartfelt sentiments,
"Be JOYful always:
Give thanks in
for this is Gods' will for you in Christ Jesus."
I know it isn't easy to "be Joyful ALWAYS" and have to admit that sometimes I'm the pouting kid...okay, more than sometimes.
But the bible commands us to
Give Thanks in ALL circumstances.
When we listen to Paul's advice, we will gain more JOY and have a better perspective,
because let's face it-
there can always be "better" or "worse"
so let's be JOYFUL exactly where we are
I choose JOY today!
