Joy comes to us in a variety of people, places, shapes, sizes, sounds, and activities. One of my biggest joy-moments is creating with friends and family. Hardly a day goes by that I don't create something!
Even more joy comes to me when I can create something out of very little or nothing. One day last week, we declared a FUN time! Mom and our friend Connie and I gathered our scraps and adhesives and spent a few hours making cheery cards for people who are sick, suffering, and alone. Out of very little we made nearly 30 cards in three hours. Connie will mail them to the peeps on the church list who are in need of prayers and support.
I just love those smiles on Mom and Connie! Each of them is a gigantic joy in my life too.
An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. Proverbs 12:25
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Romans 12:12-13
The JOY of the Lord is my strength! Nehemiah 8:10
