The gifts of the season....fresh tulips!
These are memory banks tucked away, and even now encourage me as I think about the blessings of other Believers that God has allowed in my life. I hope you have people in your life who point you to Jesus and show you the JOY that can be found in knowing HIM and worshipping HIM! He is JOY! Full Joy!
A quote by author Dallas Willard confirms this....... "Having one's joy "full" means there is no room for more of it. Full joy is our first line of defense against weakness, failure and disease of mind and body. But even when these break through in our life, "the joy of The Lord is our strength".
In our daily lives, I think most of us desire to impart JOY! Joy for me begins in preparing my heart and my home for those who will share Easter with me. Even a simple breakfast table setting like the ones above can be brought before God with blessing and JOY! Bring what gifts God has given you to Him and He will receive them and make something beautiful out of your life! Blessings of JOY to you my friend!
