In This of All Things, Be Joyful!

  I am struggling with being joyful. Not only joyful, but joy-filled.  Everyone's life is a struggle, mine, yours, those we work with. But to let ourselves be dragged down by the dirty things in life is not being joyful or joy-filled.  So we must drag ourselves out of the muck into the sunshine again.
  I begin...
   Like I have so many times but can't seem to keep it going every day, through all the muckiness...but I must keep trying.
  I began several years ago a journal of Joy Quotes. I ran across my file again and decided I really needed to review it because I've forgotten...once to embrace joy in my life instead of the muck.  So I thought maybe you could use a reminder too!

 So, we begin at Week 1:   Joy Is A Gift From God!
Psalm 65:
You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; The river of God is full of water you provide the people with grain, for so you have prepared it. You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth. You crown the year wit   your bounty; your wagon tracks overflow with richness. The pastures of the wilderness overflow, the hills gird themselves with joy, the meadows clothe themselves with flocks, the valleys deck themselves with grain, they shout and sing together for joy.
