Thursday December 20th: JOY
J-esus O-thers Y-ou
By putting yourself last and Jesus first, with others in between, it brings real joy.
Let us remember that joy isn’t just a happy feeling but is part of the mystery of our faith that comes from serving and following our Lord and King.
When I had a large family at home, I rarely had time to think about myself. I was much too busy caring for all of them. Now that I live alone, it is a great temptation to be self-centered and I do have to watch out that I don't do that.
Trying to keep the balance isn't always easy. Advent reminds us of what is important in our lives.
