I Know Joy
Joy parades out of many Bible passages
Landing on my heart as we sing “Jesus Loves Me”
or “This Little Light of Mine”
Joy surrounds me when my grandchildren lie in my lap
lollygagging like puppies, even though they are teenagers
Joy grabs me by the lapels and kisses me
when a child says “You inspire me”
Joy follows me into my driveway after work
in the form of a German shepherd named Buddy
and a Cocker Spaniel named Sophie Helen
Joy makes my heart sing when my husband of fifty years
says “You are still as beautiful as the day we married”.
I know joy, and she is wonderful!
