Finding Joy This Season


To find the greatest joy,
give selflessly.
Share your gifts, your time, your love -
be the smile others long to see!

To find your heart’s content,
show gratitude. 
Open your eyes and give thanks for life -
walk with a hopeful attitude! 

To find desired love,
Love others with God’s eyes.
Search beyond the surface seen –
you may be quite surprised!  

To find your Christmas spirit,
return to innocence.
Slow down, have fun, believe again –
remember the Lord’s presence!

I love the "slow down, believe again" line.....Sometimes we overlook the important things, when in the frenzy that comes before Christmas. Love this poem!

Hi, rhonda. I can't really speak iin a qualified way about MJ because I never tried it and never associated with those that did. I just know that research says it is non addictive. all I can think is that they don't want to break their habit. the way I do not want to stop eating popcorn. but popcorn is not addictive to my body chemically. I just love eating it is all. I wish people could just use their brains and realize when something is not good for them in large quantity!!!
