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!

So very beautiful Caren .... I love all of your examples. Joy grabs me by the lapels and kisses me when a child says “You inspire me” Just lovely and your last one about your husband of fifty years. You are blessed . Hugs, Susan :)
