There used to be a song that was often sung around the campfire at church camps and other places with a line that went "I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy Down in my heart Down in my heart to stay." I don't know how I got that in my head. I must have joy in my heart!
What brings you joy? I've asked that question here before, but think about it for a moment once again. There are tons of answers to the question. There really isn't a wrong answer. What brings you joy might not bring me joy. Does some of your own joy come in the giving too? So how can a feeling of great pleasure and happiness be felt by those around you? What can you do to share the joy? Do you every purposely try to fill others with joy and happiness?
For me joy is pretty awesome but like with this blog, it's NOT about me and it's not just about my joy alone. I really am most joyful when I am surrounded by other joyful people. Seems pretty obvious what we need to do then. We need to spread the joy, especially on this Valentine's Day!
