Preparing for Advent, starting with Joy!

During this Advent season, reflect on the things that bring you Joy!

As you reflect, do you find Joy in things, Joy in people, Joy in relationships, or Joy in the everyday? Joy in the beauty of nature? Hopefully, you have a long list of Joy!

How do you bring Joy to others? What makes you feel the most Joy? Receiving, giving, or just reflecting?

When I think of Joy, I can’t help but think of Peter Mayer’s song, Sing Joy. You can listen to it on You Tube here:

I also think about the story in Luke 1:39-45. Mary went to visit Elizabeth when they were both pregnant and Elizabeth’s baby jumped for Joy within her womb when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting!

Dear God, Open our hearts and fill them with Joy! Help us to see, sing, and be Joy during this Advent season. Let it be a season of wonder, waiting and reflection upon your word. Thanks for the Joy you bring to our lives and let our light shine Joy into the lives of others. Amen.

When I originally left a comment I seem to
have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every
time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?
Thanks a lot!

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
and I'm looking at options for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
a good platform.
