Joy bubbles up from deep within
And spills out with gladness.
Expressing joy with eager anticipation
Erases all the madness.
The world around may sizzle
With turmoil, loss, and pain,
But those need not define us.
Choose gladness and see gain.
Peek through the gloom with love
And watch the scenery change
From gloom and doom to cheerfulness.
Embrace joy; keep gladness in range!
“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will reJOYce and be glad in it.”
ReJOYce and dance, my friends.
Be glad in the Lord and sing.
Set your mind on the positive;
Let your heart in gladness ring.
Begin your day with a question,
Ask the Lord, “Whatcha got in store?”
Then follow his lead and smile –
His joy is to give you more!
More beauty and more power,
More love and gladness, too
Are waiting round the bend
In God’s storehouse for you.
So let joy bubble up from deep within.
Let gladness radiate from your face.
Practice living in His presence
And let His love fill this space.
“Love unlocks doors and opens windows
that weren’t ever there before.”
My prayer for us today:
May we live with an attitude of gratitude,
And send out the essence of gladness,
Relieving distress and doing our best
To erase all traces of sadness.
Thanks for visiting.
See ya tomorrow.
