Joy - Gioia - Freude - שמחה


  Tis the season...I have managed to collect JOY.  Surround myself with JOY, yet it is many times elusive.  So, I chose to do a bit of study on the the word JOY.

1) the emotion evoked by well-being, success, 
   or good fortune or  by the prospect of possessing what one desires
   the expression or exhibition of such emotion
2) a state of happiness or felicity, bliss
3) a source or cause of delight 
Here on Christmas appropriate time for a reflection by me...there's is Joy where I choose to find it...the little things I gloss over.  .......
from the waking kiss on my cheek this morning by my Love and hearing "Merry Christmas Eve" to...
...the music that fills my soul...the family that surrounds me....
our daughter under our roof, our son living close by, my family near and far... neighbors, my friends, my girlfriends who grow more precious every year....

... the many times this word pops up throughout this last week...trying to tell me something????

...sometimes, like the fragile glass ornament above, it gets broken and repeatedly fixed...I will not lose my JOY.

JOY is a friend who creates...and shares, thanks Beckie..

“Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.”



And JOY found tucked on a tree...All I have to do is keep my eyes and heart open...JOY is all around me...
Merry Christmas and find your JOY...
