What Joy is
watching the glimmering sparkle of sun-drenched waves
hearing the rustling of leaves,
feeling the cooling sensation of wind on face!
Gazing at the clear blue sky
With wisps of white cloud sailing by;
walking along a moonlit beach
under the canopy of shimmering stars!
observing the rain pelting green fields,
and wild flowers tossing their heads in glee;
staring at snowflakes gently falling,
Covering tree-tops and roofs!
following the swans’ gliding
gracefully across the lake,
watching a flight of birds take wing
singing in unison!
With the flaming glow Of the sun,
slowly sinking into the horizon!
taking the chair-lift up snow clad mountain-tops,
gazing down at the verdant valley below;
watching the breath-taking panorama of
cascading falls and icy glaciers;
being transported by that ethereal feeling
of flying high, like a bird,
with the world beneath one’s feet!
marvelling at GOD’s glorious creation,
that inspires reverence and praise, but it is in
realising and accepting
God’s immense and unconditional love,
while acknowledging our unworthiness,
That true joy can be found!
Above all, Joy is:
loving GOD with all our heart,
loving others as ourselves,
treating others the way we want to be treated!
forgiving others as God forgives us!
showing kindness and compassion,
with Christ as our guide and model!
