Christmas Joy

I came across this quote and thought it was really fitting:

JOY’S PRESENCE IN THE WORLD doesn’t depend on our feelings. Joy surrounds; we simply open our eyes and heart to God’s presence. Remember God. Remember God’s presence and gifts. Rejoice in God’s action in the world.

In this busy season, we can pray for drivers in front of and behind us in a traffic jam. We can give thanks for friendships, food, and fellowship at a party. We can think of ways God works through us in the workplace. We can notice signs of God’s joy–the beauty of colors, the diversity of people, the warmth of the sun, the miracle of birth. We can take an action of joy.

Carry these words in your heart today: I will open my eyes to see God’s joy.
