The Gift of Joy

There are souls in this world which have the gift of finding joy everywhere and of leaving it behind them when they go. ~Frederick Wm. Faber

I want this gift! To find joy everywhere, and then to leave it behind where ever I go ... Yes, finding and spreading Joy; that's a good gift.

Since in His Presence is fullness of Joy ... and He is indeed everywhere, this really should be a simple thing to do ... if only I'll keep my eyes on the Joy Giver instead of my own little dust-being.

Joy is the flag you fly when the Prince of Peace
is in residence within your heart.
~Wilfred Peterson

I pray our flags of Joy fly high and spread the gift of Joy everywhere we go this season ... and for all our days.
