My soul sings a song of joy.

Many different activities connect me to the joy that is deep within me. Being enveloped by the silence of a snowfall may fill me with quiet joy. Listening to a choir or joining in the singing of my favorite songs may lift my spirits.

The simple touch of a loved one's hand or the gentle support of a caregiver may lighten my heart. Lighting a candle, saying a prayer and blessing a meal can all be sources of joy in my day.

Whatever the activity, I realize joy when my mind is fixed on finding Spirit within each of my experiences. True and lasting joy comes from within--from God, the Source of every joy.

Clap your hands, all you peoples; Â shout to God with loud songs of joy.--Psalm 47:1.Inspired by this message? Want to talk to friends about it? Share your thoughts here.
