Day 20 - Joy is a priority
My idea of Christmas, whether old fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
You may have seen this acrostic before that says, Joy stands for:
Such a true Statement! It does bring joy when we get our priorities in order. But most of the time life comes with its pressures and we seem to sense a loss of joy and its then that we must remember that circumstances don’t determine whether we have joy or not. Joy is lasting and it satisfies the heart in a unique and marvelous way.
Priorities are important because you focus on what truly matters. When I focused on my faith first, everything else seems to come together with ease.
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
A thankful heart is a joyful heart. If you want to keep your joy, just be thankful. Count your blessings and you will see just how much you have to be happy about. Remind yourself just how wonderful life is. The only thing that matters at the end of the day is that our lives were lived filled with joy.
That love weighs more than gold!
