What is JOY?

To start off, I thought it would be good to define JOY.  According to, JOY is:

  1. the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation
  2. a source of keen pleasure or delight; someone or something greatly valued or appreciated
  3. the expression or display of glad feeling
  4. state of happiness or felicity
  1. to feel joy, be glad, rejoice
So, with that said, I will be writing about the things and people that bring me JOY, and about what I rejoice in.  I pray that you may find JOY in your days.  Feel free to share with me what brings you JOY ~ it is best when shared!!

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2010!  New Year New Blog.  Starting a new one with a new focus.  JOY.  This is an exercise in finding and recognizing the joy in my life and in the world around me.  It might come in the form of family (I depend on this one!), friends (most definitely), strangers, music, art, ~ there are an infinite ways to find joy.  I'm not sure how this blog will unfold, but as I teach my students, we will be flexible!!
