Share the Joy: Searching for Joy Regardless



When there's been a horrific event
like that in Newtown

or you call a friend and learn
that her niece just committed suicide

it's hard to focus on joy.

But here's the truth:
in the face of unspeakable evil,
in the face of evidence that we never know
what tomorrow will bring

we need to 




and cultivate all the joy we can.

The world needs all the light we can shine.


Maybe you've not felt much fresh joy this week.
That's not surprising. 
But you can still 

Share the Joy. 




1. do a post that tells and shows what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into 
the Mr. Linky box along with your info.

3. Visit other players and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment because everyone
 enJOYS getting positive feedback.

Let's start an epidemic of JOY!

You know, Meri, I am so grateful to have this place to gather in joy every week. Even if it is sometimes hard to find it, focusing on the joy each Thursday makes me realize its abundance, in spite of the suffering and hardships in our world. And I agree with you ! Our job is to find it and celebrate it !
Big love and joy to you, Awesoem ONe !

I've been missing my blog-hopping time, and I wanted to pop in with a quick hello. I've been missing you. I hope you are having a very, very wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas, friend.
