I thought I would have a "theme" to our Christmas this year. Just an idea or thought for us to think about throughout the season. I decided on JOY. It seemed like the perfect thing to concentrate on this season.
The definition of joy is: "the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying". It is so much more than just a feeling caused by the circumstances around us. It is great delight caused by something or someone. During this holiday season that someone is Jesus. Because of Him and His birth we have Joy. We have great delight even when things around us aren't perfect. It is all because of Jesus! So this year we will focus on having joy. We will seek to be joyful not because of what we have but because of Who we have!!
To have a visual representation of our theme I added some fun Joy things in our Christmas decorations. I am loving them!!
