Sunday Thoughts...JOY

This Sunday we light the pink candle...for JOY! We move away from the purple and look forward to the coming of the Lord with joy.

We often think of joy as happiness, but there is quite a difference.We can do things that make us happy...we can seek happiness. Joy is a gift, it is something that comes to us often when we least expect it. As Christians, we are given the gift of Joy through Jesus...that gift that is offered to us if we choose to believe.

My very sweet friend Lynda gave this little plaque to me this week for my birthday. I just love it. She got one for me, one for her friend and one for her.

After thinking about the gift of JOY, I think this is a great reminder to choose our gift of JOY. Hold on it, be thankful for it, rejoice in it.

Love your new plaque to remind us all to look for JOY everyday and in everything. Such a sweet gift. Hope you are feeling better each day and wishing you a Merry Christmas.

Lady Linda, you have one of the loveliest blogs I have seen. I have been looking for other cross stitchers. We have some common interests--Tasha Tudor and English History (I teach a course in the History of England at the Truett McConnell University). Most of all, we share of love of the Lord Jesus. Thanks for your inspiring blog!
