Joy, joy, joy – in my soul! Recently, I traveled to the Ukraine and stayed in Irpen, a beautiful city near Kiev. The people I have come to know, both from abroad and living there are unique, fascinating, caring, inspiring, and the most integer people I have ever met. In fact, I am proud to say that I found a family very dear to my heart.
This brings me so much joy. Not happiness but joy! What is joy? Joy is generally defined as “the act or feeling of showing great happiness about something”. To me, this definition does not do it justice. The joy I came to experience is divine joy one only can experience by encountering pure, authentic, virtuous love – agape love!
My greatest desire is for everyone in this world to experience this love; the love of the Father!
Imagine, on an evening with beautiful sunset, being surrounded by genuinely loving people you call friends and family, not connected by blood, but by spirit, understanding and truth. What joy, joy, joy – in my soul!
At this point, I also want to give a big shout out to the queen of joy, dear to my heart, Queen Anastasia McDonald. Check her out on Facebook!
Keep in mind: A joyful heart is good medicine! (Prov. 17:22)
