Today I have been working on finishing up the Christmas decorations...boxing and carrying them to the basement. While I was doing that I was thinking about the word joy....Joy...such a simply beautiful word. I often pray for joy and in the quiet or while I am peacefully taking a walk I often find joy in such odd places. Somethings a memory, sometimes in nature and sometimes in something one of the girls have just said. I think you can spend your life seeking joy or you can spend your life grumbling. I am choosing joy...every time. Sometimes joy is a warm, cozy feeling...and sometimes it is full of life and laughter. I pray that you find a joy that warms your soul. I will be back tomorrow with some pictures of the cross stitching I am working on. Until then, be blessed.
